The ballet dancers helping to attract wildlife to our IPU gardens to delight patients and staff alike
They’ve put together a huge hamper full of bird feeders and food
Weldmar Hospicecare is lucky to boast some very talented members of staff, and Health Care Assistant Fee Jeanes is no exception.
Fee runs Fee Jeanes Ballet in Bridport and as well as continuing to hold lessons via Zoom, Fee and the children have been raising money in order to donate a hamper full of bird feeders and food for our feathered friends at our Inpatient Unit.
Emma Mills, Senior Sister, says the environment in and around the gardens at the hospice can help everyone’s wellbeing. “We know from experience how therapeutic it can be for patients, visitors and staff. The hospice grounds are beautiful, and it is so lovely to watch and listen to a variety of birds and wildlife every day. We are so lucky that these donations have allowed us to place a brand new bird feeders outside of the window of each patient room enabling everyone to benefit.”
Sharon Thorne and Sharon Randall are both usually based at our Weymouth Outlet on the Granby, but have been redeployed to help out at the Inpatient Unit and have been putting up the bird feeders.
Some of the children also sent in some brilliant drawings of the birds they hope the food will attract!
