Female Walsall Healthcare staff had hearts full of joy after receiving their own knitted hearts from Sewa Day Charity as part of the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
Raksha Bandan means ‘binding of blessings’ and is a day when sisters tie a bracelet called a rakhi around the wrist of their brothers, to symbolise their love and good wishes for them. Brothers usually give their sisters a gift to show their appreciation and love in return.
An assortment of hearts knitted in all colours and sizes were donated to Walsall Manor Hospital along with a personalised message saying:
“To our frontliners
On this auspicious festival of Raksha Bandhan, Sewa Day brings you this ‘Rakhi’, a sacred symbol, to protect the protectors of our community.
With our heart, a big thank you, from all at Sewa Day.”
The hearts were distributed by the Fundraising team on behalf of the charity to a variety of wards.
AMU Ward Clerk, Sarah Morrison said:
“It’s really sweet and nice to know people are thinking of us.”
ED Nurse in Charge, Sindy Kayla and CSW, Andrea Porter both said:
“It’s a really nice gesture and it makes a difference to know we are still thought of and appreciated.”
Thank you Sewa Day Charity.
