LOCAL CHILDREN HELPING TO SAVE THE PLANET AND HELP OTHERS!!
During their Enabling Enterprises session, at Priestmead Primary School, the teacher was talking to the class about wastage of plastic. They were told that sometimes toys are wasted because when they are bought for children, they do not always play with them and then they are thrown away. This prompted one boy to think about collecting unused toys and donating to those who may not be lucky enough to receive them and he wanted his friend to help him.
They showed such commitment to the cause and met with the school's Family Focus Coordinator regularly to put a plan in place. They also arranged for their classmates to help to collect the toys and put them in a central place for distribution. The boys were amazing throughout this process and felt good about being able to help others.
The toys were then donated to us for rehoming. We are pleased to say all the toys have now found new homes! Thank you boys!!
Our Singing By Heart sessions are now twice a month at 2pm on the first and third Thursday of the month at South Harrow Baptist Church, for those living with dementia and their carers. All welcome!
The power of music, especially singing, to unlock memories is an increasingly key feature of dementia care as it seems to access parts of the brain that remain unaffected by the progression of dementia.
‘Singing By Heart’ uses a mixture of secular and religious songs which span the decades. Every song is introduced by a relevant scripture verse and concluded with a prayer. The sessions are designed to encourage communication, recollection of memories, and fun for those taking part. It is also hoped carers will find the sessions beneficial through enabling time for them to relax, make friends and share experiences.
COVID guidelines will be followed. We will have chairs spaced out, room ventilated and plenty of hand sanitiser!
If you know anyone who would benefit from these sessions please let them know!
