Mother's Day treat for Bear Cottage Mums
Bear Cottage mums will be treated to a few days of well-deserved rest, pampering and the opportunity to form new friendships as part of a Mum's Camp, set around Mother's Day from 11-15 May.
Six mums, who normally spend most of their time caring for their sick children and looking after the rest of their family, will be given a well-deserved break during the live-in retreat.
While their child is cared for by Bear Cottage nursing staff, the mums will trade their housekeeping and caring responsibilities for reflexology, pedicures, massages and the chance to share their experiences and coping strategies with each other.
By sharing time together and exchanging stories, the mums are given the support they need and the confidence of knowing they are not alone. The camps often foster valuable long-term friendships between mums.
We are grateful for the support we receive from local businesses and service providers who donate many of the enjoyable experiences offered to the visiting mums over the four-day weekend.
We are looking forward to spoiling these wonderful mums this Mother's Day and reminding them of just how special they are.
