Rafi our “Happy Helper” and his pals having fun

Darius and Maria sharing fun

When you have no family of your own it is easy to bond with the children you share with at St Margaret’s and so it is with Maria and her friend Darius. Now the roof of their ward has been repaired and everything is back to normal, the sensory garden is restored, and so has playtime, Darius and Maria make a joyful little duo playing together in the autumn sunshine. The ever-smiling Darius has a wonderful nature and makes her a little place in his chair so they can “walk” together. After Maria takes a spin, it was Rafi’s turn. Rafi has lately taken to becoming a “little helper”, just like his older mentor Florin. He helps put some pampers in the store and he was pets the hobby horse every time he passed it, pretending that he is sleeping and he is assuring he stays asleep. When Rafi has finished stacking all the pampers on their shelf the carers all applaud him, because it’s important to encourage the little rascal if there is any hope he will become a responsible and involved young man.

With most of our staff returning from their vacation, the kids playing together in the sensory garden; Florin back from school, hugging and bonding with everyone, it seems that every day is a party day at St Margaret’s Hospice.

By sponsoring one of these children living in our hospice you could make a significant difference to their life , please contact Julian Dawydiak our Child Sponsorship Champion on 0141 559 5699 or email
