Well done, Bognor Regis WI! A sample of our work is shown in these photographs.
Our laundry bags and fabric hearts have been distributed to St Richards Maternity Unit, Queen Alexander Hospital, and Bognor Regis Care Homes including Burlington, Homebeech, Royal Bay, and Abbotslawn. There are more on the go too!
To ensure the bags get to the right places in time, our WI has worked with Aldwick Quilters, who have reached more Care Homes, including Ashley Place and Aronel Cottage.
The laundry bags enable care staff to take their uniforms home to wash, in the bag, minimising the risk of corona virus contamination between the two places. The hearts are a token of our appreciation for the work that care staff do with their residents, or to bring a sparkle of joy to residents.
Care Homes have been touched, and some overwhelmed, by the kindness and generosity our WI members have shown. Each Care Home has thanked us sincerely (see one example below). The range of fabric colours and the decorations on the hearts has put a smile on their faces, and helped them feel appreciated during a time when some have felt left out.
