Residents at Fairway View care home in Bulwell are encouraging their community to offer support to Nottingham-based charity, Operation Orphan, by donating coats and jackets to their ‘Keep a Child Warm’ project.
Operation Orphan aims to keep orphans and vulnerable children around the world safe, warm, healthy and learning.
Sarah Barnes, the Home Manager at Fairway View, said,
‘This is such an important cause and it’s one that is very close to our hearts. The thought of a child without a coat to keep them warm is heart-breaking, so we’re collecting as many coats as we can to make a difference – every child deserves to feel loved and warm.’
93-year-old resident at Fairway View, Beryl Bradley, is determined to support the project. She said,
‘To think that there are children in this day and age that don’t have simple things like a coat is awful. I’m so glad everyone here at Fairway View are lending a helping hand, it makes me very proud to be part of this home.’
When the staff and residents made their first donation of coats to the charity, Emma Archer, the Operations Assistant at Operation Orphan, said,
‘Every coat we give impacts the life of a child; the common story we hear from families we give to is that they are faced with the choice of buying food or warm clothing for their children.
‘We are so appreciative to Fairway View for helping us give the gift of warmth to so many children. Your donation is gratefully received.’
Fairway View are continuing to collect new and second-hand coats and jackets to donate to Operation Orphan. You can drop your donations off at Fairway View care home, Swale Close, Bulwell, Nottingham, NG6 9LZ.
