Little Hearts really do Matter at Glasgow’s Cumbrae House Care Home

18th October 2017 | By | Reply More

Cumbrae House Care Home hosted a very special tea party for the residents and children from Somerset Nursery with a guest appearance from ‘In the Night Garden’s Upsy Daisy’.

Cumbrae House is a unique development at St. Georges Cross located where the city centre meets the West End. The building has a total of 66 beds which includes nursing, enhanced residential and residential care.

 

The tea party was organised also to present the nursery with a cheque for £426.40 for Little Hearts Matter Children’s Charity. Last weekend Cumbrae House Care Home held a coffee afternoon in aid of the Children’s Charity and would like to thank everyone that supported the event.

 

The Children’s Charity is very close to the hearts of the staff and residents at Cumbrae House Care Home. For over a year children from Somerset Nursery have been visiting the residents at Cumbrae House Care Home to participate in fun activities with them. Our residents and the children named it the ‘Young at Heart Club’ and the children also invite our residents to events at their nursery throughout the year.

 

James Calder, Home Manager at Cumbrae House Care Home said: “It’s so lovely to see the children interacting with our residents, everyone smiling and having fun. It brings a lot of joy to our residents.

 

James added: “Unfortunately one of the children from Somerset nursery, Ian has a heart condition so we decided we wanted to do something for the charity. We thought a coffee afternoon would be a great way to raise money for the charity. We hope the money raised from our coffee afternoon helps in some way.”

 

Little Hearts Matter is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting and empowering anyone affected by the diagnosis of a single ventricle heart condition – or half a working heart.
