We have 6 new charity pots ready to go to their new collection points. If you/your employer could have a charity pot where you work, that would be amazing. Every donation really does help – £20 will buy nappies and baby milk for a new mum, £40.00 will buy a microwave for a family in temporary accommodation; and £70.00 will pay for a food shop for a family of 4. We are all volunteers, and every penny/item donated goes directly to the local families in need
This week, we have provided nappies, food shopping, clothing, school uniform, toys, books, bunk beds, a cot, bedding, a pushchair and are still receiving daily requests for support. The children needing bunk beds were sleeping on a mattress on the floor – we ordered brand new bunk beds and the children (and mum) were over the moon.
