A little children’s nursery in Hamworthy have received a £500 donation in honour of the fun and entertainment they bring to the residents at Dorset House care home.
Muddy Boots Nursery has been chosen by Care South as the latest beneficiary of its Chairman’s 2020 Fund. The fund was set up to give back to community groups, services and organisations which benefit Care South’s residents and staff, and their Care at Home clients.
Children from the day nursery, which looks after pre-school-aged kids, regularly visit the care home on Coles Avenue in Poole to sit and read with the residents, play games using a parachute, participate in crafts, gardening and other seasonal activities. It was during one of these visits that Simon Bird, Chief Executive, made the presentation to the children and team from Muddy Boots Nursery.
Simon Bird, Care South’s Chief Executive, said: “I have seen first-hand the big difference that the children make to the lives of our residents. As soon as the kids walk into the room, our residents’ faces light up with delight and they love spending time with the children. I am so pleased that we could give a little something back to Muddy Boots Nursery as a ‘Thank you’ for helping our care home to continue to be filled with fun and laughter.”
