"Harry can’t understand us when we tell him we’re going to Demelza – but his little face just lights up when we show him his three favourite photos of his time there."
We first went to Demelza as a family before COVID-19. It was amazing. We played, had lunch; Harry and his brothers ran wild in the garden and the soft play room while their dad and me had a cup of tea, knowing they were all safe – with Harry in the care of an expert. We finished the day splashing around in their hydro pool together (that picture is one of Harry’s three favourites).
We were all still having to be very careful then, so Demelza created a Grotto at the hospice and we all came along (in the rain, but we didn’t mind) and we walked round the brilliant Festive Light Trail in the garden – and then, the boys met Father Christmas. Harry’s eyes were so wide, his smile so big.
