Heatherton House Welcomes Wonderful Wishes Children for Reading Session
Heatherton House, in collaboration with Wonderful Wishes Children, opened its doors to welcome a group of young, enthusiastic readers for a heartwarming event. During this visit, the children engaged in reading sessions with the residents. The choice of location was entirely up to the residents, who could enjoy the comforting embrace of the lounge or the coziness of their own rooms, where they receive care.
The joy and delight experienced by both the children and the residents during this activity were palpable. It was a heartwarming experience that left everyone involved eagerly anticipating the next reading session. The collaboration with Wonderful Wishes Derby, a community interest company, was a perfect match, as their values align with those of Heatherton House.
Wonderful Wishes Derby is a parent-led support group that extends its hand to families from all backgrounds. Their mission is to provide support, no matter the scale of the challenge, and to facilitate access to various activities and resources. They prioritize creating a supportive network for families in need.
Heatherton House's collaboration with Wonderful Wishes Derby embodies the essence of community and intergenerational bonding. The partnership not only supports children in their growth but also brightens the lives of the residents. It's a beautiful synergy where stories are shared, connections are formed, and hearts are touched.
One of the mothers whose daughter participated in the reading session shared her thoughts, saying, "What a great experience for kids! My daughter hasn’t stopped speaking about it! She loved it." This sentiment echoed the feelings of many others involved.
The daughter of one of the residents also expressed her appreciation, describing the children as "absolute stars" and commending their beautiful reading. The partnership between Heatherton House and Wonderful Wishes Children promises a bright future, filled with more heartwarming moments and shared stories.
