Habbydays, in Eaton Socon, decided to put together an assortment of goodies in time for Valentines Day, after the son of one of its employees was diagnosed with meningitis. At just three-months-old, George Paddington was rushed to hospital in February 2016 where he was diagnosed with septicaemia before being transferred to St Marys Hospital in London. There, his mum, Kerry Vidgen, 26, was told he had meningitis an infection of the protective membranes which surround the brain and spinal cord. George was put on a life support machine and developed other complications during his treatment which meant he had to go for surgery at Addenbrookes Hospital. Now, a year on from the familys ordeal, the toddler is getting stronger despite being hemiplegic, globally delayed and diagnosed with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. And to recognise his progress and the work done to save him, the haberdashery store wants to give something back Gayle Hall, who is Kerrys sister and owner of Habbydays, has put together a Georges Valentine Surprise Box in aid of the childrens ward at Hinchingbrooke. She said: It was just a massive blow. There was this little boy who had just come into the world, and when you hear meningitis you know its bad. It was incredibly scary. It was hard seeing Kerry go through all of that, and George himself, and shes my hero. We were there as much as possible, but she was there on her own in the hospital and in the hotel rooms. Its your worst nightmare. The boxes are made up of crafting goodies with a Valentines theme including buttons, zips, thread, pins, beads, and artwork, with all proceeds going to the hospital to help them buy toys and equipment for patients. Habbydays, in Steel Close, and is also selling the box online. Small boxes cost £9, with regular sizes costing £17. For more, visit habbydays.co.uk.
