I've been catching up with the amazing things that Heather has been upto during lockdown. Read on for some sure fire Monday Motivation.
Heather is an 8 year old who struggled with lockdown and finally found a focus re-cycling pre-loved china cups/saucers into bird feeders and broken necklaces into Little Lockdown Angels. She sells these to raise money for Alzheimer Scotland.
Her Facebook page Lockdown Crafts By H. will give you an indication of her hard work. https://www.facebook.com/Lockdown-Crafts-by-H-105730697901138
She currently has over 1260 followers and the community has been so supportive, it's been an amazing confidence builder for her. She went through a rough time recently, changing schools, a fractured arm (2nd one in a matter of months) (arm wrestling the boys in her new class a week into joining the school) and a close family bereavement. The response to her project has lifted her spirits and encouraged her through the low times.
Her project started in Sept and since then she has raised nearly £1000 along with awareness that Alzheimer Scotland is there to support people. Morrisons Supermarket and Santander Bank have given her table space to promote her project and that will be ongoing once the restrictions are lifted.
She is currently working with Alzheimer Scotland to develop child friendly training sessions that she hopes will be available to every child in every school throughout Scotland.
Over the months she's gifted her Little Lockdown Angels to care staff to say thank you for their hard work and bird feeders to Care Homes in the hope it would raise some smiles amongst the residents.
The Glasgow Herald thought her project was worthy of their Christmas Eve special edition which celebrated successes of 2020.
And, she didn't stop there - look out for further news about Heather in my blogs during the week.
