Well, I’ve had another busy week with the Magee family in Bradford. We’ve been handing out so many awareness cards and chatting to people about NAIT and our super website.
Firstly, we took a trip to the toy library at St Lukes Hospital. This is a wonderful library for children with additional needs. Not only do they loan sensory toys and books but they have play sessions and coffee mornings and also arrange trips for children and their parents/carers. Like Naitbabies.org the library is a non-profit organisation which relies on donations and fundraising. The staff here are so kind and helpful, here’s me with Michelle.
I then joined in a hydrotherapy session with Archie and his friends, which he goes to every week at St Lukes Hospital. Everyone had a wonderful time splashing about, singing and playing games! I got to meet some of Archie’s friends who were all lovely!
Well, the time has come for me to say goodbye to Bradford and the Magee family. I’ve had a wonderful time and hope to return again sometime. But now I look forward to continuing my journey just a few miles up the road to Leeds to meet another family affected by NAIT.
