How your dough-nations will help other children
Children like Nathan, aged 9, knead your help to raise some dough so he can come for short supportive stays at Helen & Douglas House which he says is his favourite place in the world. We help terminally ill children live their short lives to the full, creating happy memories to treasure.
Children like Nathan love baking when they come to stay with us. Cooking with our teacher helps children’s cognitive development. It encourages children’s thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. It also allows children the opportunity to use the knowledge they have and apply it by counting, measuring, following a sequence, following directions, and cause and effect at the hospice and at home. Nathan had lots of fun baking this cheeky chocolate cake for his mum’s birthday.
‘It’s the only place I will leave Nathan. The care he receives at Helen & Douglas House, both physically and mentally is brilliant. Nathan loves it at Helen & Douglas House. It gives him a break as well and he loves all the nurses and the playroom. It lets him be him, rather than having to worry about his medical needs. He likes the spa bath, playing football, the music and baking chocolate cakes. Everything is built around his ability which is great.’ Jenny, Nathan’s Mum
