WICCI Rainbow Care Boxes
Sometimes it can be really hard to know what to say or do when someone close to you reveals they have a cancer diagnosis.
There is so much ahead of them that it can be difficult to know what to give to help them at that time.
Of course, often the best thing you can offer is just to be there, be a listening ear, offer to help out with some of their daily chores or just give them the space they might need to work out what they want from you.
Over the past few years, we have been listening to people who have gone through cancer treatment and have created the ‘WICCI Rainbow Care Boxes’ which could help you to give something when you don’t know what else to do.
Our WICCI Rainbow Boxes offer comforting treats and practical items as people start or deal with some of the side effects of treatment.
The boxes have been thoughtfully put together with advice from care professionals and people who have been affected by cancer.
We have tried to source as many of the items in the boxes through local, Western Isles suppliers, which not only supports and promotes ‘shop local’ it also gives the recipient a memento from ‘home’ if they are to be away a lot for treatment.
We are so thankful to the following businesses who supported us with the box contents, including ishga skincare, Sandwick Bay Candles, Nicolson’s Paper shop, KJ Macdonald chemists, Janet Ross-Jordon at Cards & Gift Wrap, G R Jordan, Agnes Macleod and Stag Bakeries. All but three items in the boxes have been bought locally.
We have several boxes, at various prices, available for a Woman, Man, Older Person or Young Adult. Perhaps you could come together with your friend group or family circle and purchase a box together? Or if you have a limited budget, the Essentials box offers some fantastic gifts that would be well received. You can also ‘add’ other items to the boxes, such as a gift voucher for the local supermarket or fuel voucher, which could really practically help your recipient when money may be a worry. Just speak to us when you are going through the order to discuss these options.
If some of the items in the boxes aren’t suitable, or you would like to add in other items then please get in touch and discuss your recipient’s needs or situation and we will endeavour to make something up together.
We also have the option to ‘Gift a Box’ to someone. If you would like to purchase a box then we would match your box up with someone we know would hugely appreciate the gesture. Just get in touch to discuss this option.- 01851 706721
