Busy Week for Referrals

It’s been another busy week – we have provided/are providing boys clothes, baby clothing, highchair, nappies, baby milk, bedding, a washing machine, children’s shoes, older boys clothing and trainers, 3 x food shops, birthday presents, two sets of school uniform, travel cot, and are trying to source a cheap provider for triple bunk beds and carpet. These families are going through very difficult times, including domestic violence, poverty, alcohol abuse, neglect etc. We never fail to be amazed by the resilience of these families – especially the children. We can make a difference in a small way, and help them turn their lives around, and move forward. Thank you all for your continued support – a special thank you to AOK Rucksack Appeal – who always help whenever they can – Charities working together to support local people

Helping to clothe Teenagers so they can go to school/interviews

Thank you to everyone who donated clothes for the teenage boys – sad situation with a difficult upbringing – they now have smiles on their faces as they only had clothes with holes and no deodorant etc. This was all provided for them, their mum and sister. THANK YOU!!

The email we received from their Social Worker – Thank you to everyone who donated for the teenage boys, their sister and mum – this is the comment back from their Outreach Worker – ” I would like to say a huge thank you to Ashleys Birthday Bank for their support with a local family. Your donators have been amazing ! Now these three young people and their Mum have lots of lovely clothes and shoes and toiletries and as a result are beginning to feel more confident to go out and about in their community. It has really made such a difference to them as they really didn’t have anything before. Many thanks”
