Story

Hello From Baby Bank Tendring!

Baby Bank is a non profit community run volunteer led group After watching dispatches programme on Baby Banks the decision was made to set one up to help children and families in the Tendring area.

The families and children who can use the service can include:foster carers, domestic violence cases, premature babies, illness/ disability, suprise pregnancy, benefit changes, those that have lost jobs or anyone that just needs a helping hand.

We operate like the food bank but for baby and childrens items up to the age of 5. This can be equipment such as cots, prams and highchairs, toiletries,nappies, clothing, bedding, toys and books. These can be pre loved but some items have to be brand new.

Baby Bank Tendring was born in November 2018 and have helped so far over 100 families and children and are continuing to grow and recieve referrals daily.

Baby Bank operate Hubs in 4 key areas in Jaywick, Clacton, Walton and Harwich and offer hubs for the service. These have been identified as the place where the most need is, but baby bank also visit round the Tendring area.

In order to sustain the needs and the levels of service we need to develop and grow as a community group. We enjoy networking and visiting people and places to let them know about the service we offer.

We are looking for funding to sustain these hubs and develop baby bank - 1. we need storage space to be able to take more items that are pre loved as currenrtly we are having to turn away donations and 2. We need funding for essential brand new equipment costs to be met to continue to develop and successfully run baby bank.

Any money recieved will be used to pay for items for baby bank. The essential equipment costs for brand new items due to Health and safety are below and also storage costs.

£1 - bottle of shampoo

£5- moses basket mattress

£10- tin of milk for a week

£20 - brand new cot mattress

£35- brand new car seat

£40 cost of a storage unit for a month

As a community we have been very lucky with the support for Baby Bank so for this fundraising please donate, like, share, and help in anyway that you can!

      Money for 2 Moses Mattresses - great idea to see the costs of items! People give money to national charities all the time but nice to see something local ! Keep up the good work!
