Free Baby Buddy app for parents

In the lead up to NHS Change Day happening on March 11th, the child health charity Best Beginnings are inviting parents and professionals who work in the early years to download and use their free Baby Buddy app (see http://www.bestbeginnings.org.uk/babybuddy) which is endorsed by many organisations including the Department of Health.

Best Beginnings has created Baby Buddy to empower mothers to improve their health choices and well-being and help them maximise their baby’s potential. As well as increasing knowledge and confidence and enhancing bonding and attachment, Baby Buddy reinforces the importance of accessing local services.

It is World Book Day this Thursday (see http://worldbookday.com).

If they wish, children can come to school dressed as a character from a book they have enjoyed. This is optional and no donation/payment is required. Regular school uniform should be worn if children do not wish to dress as a book character.

Billy’s “Back on My Own 2 Feet” Campaign

One of our Teaching Assistants, Claudia, has a nephew, Billy, who was diagnosed with bone cancer five days before his 20th birthday. He has recently had to undergo surgery to amputate his leg and hip. In order for Billy to be able to walk again his family have to raise money for a prosthetic limb as the NHS are not able to fund this.

So Billy and his family are looking to raise £70,000 for the new limb.

The details of Billy’s campaign can be found here.

All donations would be appreciated very much.
