Bow Visits Melton

Bow needed to buy a new shirt, where else would he go but the Rainbows Shops? He tried it on, and while he was here he loved the shop so much he decided to stay and volunteer!  Check him out below sorting donations, serving customers and steaming. We treated him to coffee and biscuit break after a hard mornings work. After more volunteering he had lunch with us, which you may notice is pork pie and stilton cheese – what else would he eat when he comes to Melton?!

Giraffes, Flowers, Bows & Glitter

Everyone at the Hospice had a great day yesterday with our Open Arts and Crafts day in the Playroom, everyone was given the opportunity to create a masquerade mask with all the glue, felt, pens and paints their heart desired. We definitely had some really snazzy outcomes ranging from Giraffes, Jesters and flowery felt hybrids. Masks definitely fit for any surprise Masquerade Ball this Summer, or even just to brighten up a dull day :)
