Amaya Guiney, 5, recently lost two teeth, as her adult teeth start to grow through. Instead of placing her teeth under her pillow and making a wish to the tooth-fairy, she decided to ask the tooth-fairy for help in fundraising for care bags, as she likes to help people.
Amaya wanted to make ‘care bags’ for local Residents, which included lots of lovely sweets, chocolates, word searches, tissues, toiletries and a little angel and a letter to the recipient.
The idea to make care bags for some of the Residents at Woodlands View came to Amaya mind because she realised that, in such hard times, they’ve been amazing. The Residents were so happy and had big smiles on their faces when they got their bags.
Woodlands View Resident Terry said: “How nice, that’s so kind” and Residents Christopher said: “That’s so thoughtful, we must send her a thank you card.”
Residents thoroughly enjoyed sitting together and opening their wonderful care bags and discussing what they had received. Some even enjoyed completing their word search and some got stuck into their sweets straight away.
Deby O’Hare, Woodlands View Home Manager said: “What a lovely act of kindness from Amaya to put a big smile on our Residents’ faces, we are very thankful.”
