💙 THANKFUL THURSDAY 💙We’d like to say a big thank you to @berkshirecommunityfoundation for the money we received as part of their Surviving Winter fund. We were able to purchase blankets and hot water bottles enabling us to provide warmth and comfort to the families we support. If you’re someone that has experience with funding applications for charities or similar that would happily spare a couple of hours helping us apply for some additional grants, we would love to hear from you #heatoreat #survivingwinter #warmth #cosy #winter #funding #berkshirecommunityfoundation #charity #donate #vitalfunds #funding #financialaid #thebabybank #community #hardship #poverty #children #babies #teens ...

⭐️⭐️⭐️ THANKFUL THURSDAY ⭐️⭐️⭐️Our Thankful Thursday post today goes to our regular financial donors. We are very fortunate to have some supporters of The Baby Bank who have monthly direct debits set up to regularly ensure we have vital funds to finance those essential items we may struggle to get. This enables us to ensure we are able to support with purchasing items we may otherwise not be able to provide as well as efficiently plan ahead. If you like the idea of helping us and wanting to set something up to regularly provide help to us and the children we support, please do get in touch find out how. It’s very easy to set up and manage. Thank you 💙#fundraisingfebruary #charity #donate #support #finance #thebabybank #community #neighbours #fromonefamilytoanother #ittakesavillage ...

It seems a strange thing to do. To celebrate existing for 9 years helping out families experiencing hardship financially, emotionally and mentally. We’ve grown considerably in 9 years. In team size, in the vast array of items that we are able to support with and the geographical space that we now cover. Without our community, our volunteers and our wide network of referral partners who strive to support families going above and beyond, we wouldn’t have been able to provide help to this many families. A children’s charity that shouldn’t exist. But we are glad that we do. Thank you for being part of the journey 💙 #childrenscharity #donate #helpinghands #9yearsold #berkshire #buckinghamshire #hillingdon #slough #windsor #maidenhead #uxbridge #ascot #bracknell #datchet #burnham #colnbrook #hayes #highwycombe #aylesbury #amersham #chesham #support #help #fromonefamilytoanother #ittakesavillage #thebabybank ...

⭐️⭐️ THANKFUL THURSDAY ⭐️⭐️Check this out! This wonderful collection was instigated by sixth form students across a number of schools in the Thames Valley area who wanted to make a difference to a local charity and their community.Finlay, one of the students at St Joseph's Catholic High School, Sloughthat helped coordinate and drive the collection, told me she wanted to help a charity that would help families in Slough as she knows that’s an area where families experience financial hardship. What a fantastic job they did! A huge collection of basic essentials we gift on a weekly basis which will keep us stocked up so families don’t have to go without. The students were buzzing about their success which you can see has really empowered them to speak out and do something that makes a positive difference. The Thames Valley Learning Partnership is made up of 11 schools across the Thames Valley, who work together to create opportunities for their students. A huge thank you to all involved The Windsor Boys' School Windsor Girls' School Beechwood school. Have these students inspired you to work with your network of friends or family? Could you coordinate something similar in your school or work place? Perhaps even amongst neighbours or friends as part of our Fundraising for February? #donate #support #volunteer #essentials #nappies #babywipes #toiletries #dignity #hardship #poverty #thamesvalley #slough #school #students #buckinghamshire #berkshire #helpinghand #thankyou #fundraisingforfebruary ...

It’s been a busy day making up some newborn bundles today. We’ve see a flurry of requests for some imminent new arrivals which we’ve been helping the families prepare for. What did you use for your little one? A crib or moses basket? #newborn #baby #boyorgirl #childrenscharity #thebabybank #support #help #donate #fromonemothertoanother #helpinghands #community #bedding #nappies #essentials ...
