A few weeks ago, as part of our Children in Need efforts, we donated a range of activity packs to 11 Special Needs schools within the Leicestershire area. Put together with the help of our Occupational Therapists, our Clinical Services Lead Rachel Seabrook explained the benefits behind the packs, saying:
“Playing games or completing activities together can help children learn from each other, share memories, and improve skills such as hand eye coordination. The activity packs aim to be inclusive for children of all ages and abilities.”
As you can imagine, the activity packs were gratefully received – especially by the schools who personally invited us to present the gifts at their dedicated Children in Need assemblies.
The children we met at these schools were nothing short of wonderful – full of courage and vigour – so we were thrilled when, last week, we received handmade cards from them, not only to say thank you for their gifts but also to wish everyone at NRS Healthcare a very Merry Christmas.
In addition, we’ve also received several photographs of the students learning together and having fun with their new equipment – something which pleases us greatly. We feel very privileged to have been able to make a difference to these exceptional schools and we wish everyone, staff and students alike, all the best for a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic 2016.
