We were pleased to welcome Abs from St Luke’s education team with three researchers from Belgium – Bert, Louise and Ruth this week.

They were visiting Plymouth, a compassionate city and wanted to visit ND as they are working on making Ghent in Belgium a Compassionate City. Hopefully we can inspire other schools in Ghent to become compassionate schools and support bereaved and pre-bereaved students. 

The visit coincided with a massive fundraising effort by the Kaleidoscope group, raising money in order to support Plymouth Oncology Unit. All week they sold cakes, sweets and wristbands to raise funds, as well as selling roses which staff and students could gift to a friend as a thank you or as a gift with a message of hope attached
