Wooden Crosses for the Nelson Hospice
On Monday 15 April, the Silver Level Vinnies delivered to the Nelson Hospice some beautiful wooden crosses that they had painted. The wooden crosses were created by the Waimea MenzShed and were designed in such a way that they easily fit into the palm of your hand providing comfort for people as they are dying. The Silver Level Vinnies painted these crosses and were assisted by a few eager beavers who applied lavender oil on the back of them. Tags were then attached and the crosses delivered.
The crosses will be in the reception area of the inpatient unit for people to take one to give to a patient. Should this project prove successful, the Waimea MenzShed have kindly offered us a continued supply of crosses and hearts we are able to deliver.
