Fourteen families have now stayed at Ripple Retreat and the feedback has been superb. Suggestions have been made by the families too and we have a new wishlist on Amazon to reflect some of the suggestions. We now have three new Young Ambassadors from amongst our younger guests and we look forward to working with them in 2018.
We are also working on our project at the new Sick Children's Hospital in Edinburgh where we will be providing comfy chairs for parents, some extra lockers for use by parents and are also funding the artwork in the children's oncology ward.
Our snack team continue to work hard providing snacks to parents and patients in the current children's hospital in Edinburgh, in Ward 2. We have two new members of our team and we are very grateful to them for giving up their time to help us.
Blingo, which is my favourite event of the year was a great success this year and we raised £25000 - thank you to everyone that came/bid/donated and volunteered. We are already getting ready for Blingo 2018!
A continued thanks to everyone who has helped us get this far.
