We have delivered 100 ‘mindful care packages’ which include a hand made bag with a mindful activity such as painting by numbers, origami, jigsaw puzzles, diamond art, mindful colouring, some nice toiletries, a candle and chocolates.

We are also supplying a very large number of snacks and coffee pods from an Amazon wish list. The community is being extremely generous and we dropping large amounts of coffee, healthy and unhealthy snacks and energy drinks. We are also supplying hand, face and eye cream as well as acne treatment because of problems arising from wearing a mask for 12 hours at a time.
