This is a great idea from Vera Stewart – member of Team It’s Good 2 Give and parent to Victoria. Victoria is currently pretty famous as our face on the bus! If you see the It’s Good 2 Give Lothian Bus (bus number 853 often to be found on routes, 31, 16, 11, 7 and more) then you will see Victoria’s beautiful face – one of the pictures is of her in her hospital bed having lost all her hair after chemotherapy and the other is of her after treatment. Victoria is now 6 and very well. She loves school, crafts, her friends, life and of course – our bus!
Vera said to me one day – why don’t we do a Buy a Service. Lots of our supporters want to donate but sometimes they want to decide where the money should be spent.
So, lovely supporters, here are some ideas for you!
£15 I Tunes Voucher For our teenage cancer patients
£30 Teenage Pack includes things that can make a teenager’s stay on the ward a bit nicer, for example Simple skin care products, a baggy white t shirt and a note book
£50 100 2nd class stamps to be used in our parent packs and in our office
£60 It’sGood 2 Give/ Merrythought Bear for a young cancer patient or sibling
£75 Parent Pack includes things to make the parents life on the Ward a bit nicer, for example Arran Aromatics soaps, notecards/stamps/pen, booklight and a fan
£100 Gardening When staying in hospital for long time, things like getting the garden done at home are impossible, so we can sometimes help with that.
£200 Wig On requests, We provide real hair wigs for the children
£300 Snacks Every week we deliver fruit and snacks to the ward at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children and more recently to the ward for teenagers at the Western General Hospital.
If you would like to support this way by buying any of these services – do get in touch.
