Two year old Jacob Fiddler, from Heskin, Chorley, who attends the Legacy Nursery at
Rainbow House, Mawdesley, was very worried when he saw that one of the Christmas
reindeer was looking very poorly after being hurt in the high winds which had damaged his
head and antlers.
He wanted Mum, Claire Fiddler, to make sure that the reindeer, which is called Prancer,
went to Reindeer Hospital so, after a few days, Claire took Prancer home and tended to
his damaged head and antlers.
Jacob and his Grandad, Bill, helped to make Prancer better with Jacob giving
his nose a little kiss to make sure he made a full recovery.
“Prancer” is now back at Rainbow House fitting fit and ready for the Christmas action.
Carole Cochrane CBE DL, Chief Executive said, “Jacob is a very caring little boy and we are
delighted that, with Claire’s help, Prancer is ready for all the Christmas fun at Rainbow House.”
She added, “Claire and her family have been involved with Rainbow House virtually since
we started and have supported us in so many ways. She is related to the Fiddler family
who make the Fiddlers crisps so well known in Lancashire so we have benefited from lots
of delicious crisps for our events as well.”
