We want to give a special shout out to Un Caffe Bar in the North Adelaide Shopping Village on O’Connell St.
Often we get requests from the Hospice to provide a meal for a patient that would really brighten their day. Recently we had such a request and despite efforts to find a café or restaurant to help us, we were struggling. We were almost at the point of giving up (and cooking it ourselves) when Un Caffe came to the rescue. Despite the ingredients not being on their menu, they organised to buy them, grill them and have the Focaccia ready when it was needed.
Well done to the Manager and thanks for going out of your way to help us! ... See MoreSee Less
A box of bears dropped into our office on Friday thanks to one of our supporters – Treza.
Understanding death and grief is not easy for adults but for a child it is even more difficult. So our social worker Sig uses Treasure Boxes which are filled with items provided by the Foundation, designed to entertain and distract initially but their main purpose is to help them open up and start talking about their feelings. Children are encouraged to fill the box with keepsakes of their mum, dad or grandparent.
Thanks Treza for providing these unique and gorgeous bears. You are a star! Treza was happy to make the bears as she lost her mum in the hospice a long time ago but she also makes them as part of a random act of kindness project ameakindnessbears.com/blog/... See MoreSee Less
