Winter Wonderland at the Hospice
This month the Very Special Kids Hospice was transformed into a Winter Wonderland, with lights, Christmas decorations and a whole lot of fake snow which was beyond magical.
Our July School Holiday Program ran and thanks to our staff and volunteers, the children staying thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Not only did were we visited by many special guests, we also had the North Pole Kitchen in full swing, and arts and crafts tailored to the theme for everyone to be a part of. The children were taken into a wonderful world of creativity and imagination.
Some of our special guests included Queen Elsa and Princess Anna, who helped us build snowmen and performed their magic tricks. They even created a snowstorm and sang ‘Let It Go’ which the kids adored.
Santa Claus came to visit and sang us carols and handed out presents. One of his reindeers later made an appearance too, with a miniature pony dressed in it’s finest reindeer outfit turning even the most curved frowns upside down.
We then had some more fluffy creatures visit us, from Rainbird’s Farm, and we especially loved the lamb and baby goat. There were even some not so fluffy, interesting guests, that slithered and hopped about, from Wildlife X-posure.
The two weeks were filled with a lot of fun and countless smiles and although we are sad to see them over, we cannot wait to see what the next program brings.
The School Holiday Programs are operated four times each year by Very Special Kids Hospice, and ensures that children with life-threatening illnesses have access to activities in a safe and controlled environment, and experiences they wouldn’t usually get to have.
