A starter pack of clothes, baby milk, muslin cloths, bottles, bottle steriliser, blanket and teddy going to a new mum expecting any day, who literally had nothing for him, and a bundle of clothes for a 10 month old boy and a new teddy and a toy going to another little boy. One from a Social Worker referral and one from a Family Practitioner referral. Thank you to those who donated pre-loved items and thank you for your support with fundraising which helped us purchase the baby milk and muslin cloths
Car seat, clothing, pushchair, week’s food shop, bedding, books, dvds and toys. All going to help a lady who has taken in 3 young family members to prevent them going into care. They arrived with very little and we hope these, and the items donated earlier in the week, will help them settle. Thank you again to everyone who responded to our call outs.
If anyone can donate supermarket vouchers, this would help us enormously with continuing to provide fresh, healthy food for these families.
Feedback received today from a young Mum’s Social Worker – ”
I have been out to visit the family today who you have helped support. Mum was incredibly grateful for the food shop and said that she has now discovered that her son likes mince as a result! The kitchen utensils have been a huge help and have made for a great starter kitchen set. The clothes and toy donations have been greatly received too , the clothes having been neatly folded away into age order. They should keep the child clothed for many months yet. The parent has been able to update her child’s toys using ones which were donated, which I saw him playing happily with this morning. The child did not have a highchair until you donated one, which has made meal times much more manageable and fun.
This family have waited a long time to have their own home and live independently-Ashley’s birthday bank have contributed to this immensely. Thank you for you ongoing support! ”
