    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Thank you for taking time to visit our fundraising page.

    Imagine holding your child in your arms for the first time and not knowing how you are going to clothe them or where they are going to sleep. Imagine having no money to buy nappies and no family to support you. This can be the situation that many mothers find themselves in and Baby Basics are determined to meet that need in a very practical way.

    Baby Basics is an organisation that works with Health Visitors, Midwives and other professionals to provide starter kits for new mums and babies in need. They help vulnerable people such as teenage mums, those seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking. Their Moses baskets provide a safer bed for the babies to sleep in and are packed full of toiletries, nappies, wipes, maternity pads etc as well as blankets, towels and baby clothes. For some of the recipients these are the only items that they have for their child.

    We are a group of women (and mums) stepping out of our comfort zone to take part in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge helping raise funds for Baby Basics Bolton and Bury. To raise money, we will be walking approximately 24 miles (including over 1500m of ascent) in under 12 hours on the 9th June 2018. The 3 Peaks of the challenge are Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

    All of the money raised will go directly towards the work of Baby Basics Bolton and Bury.

      One last big THANK YOU to everyone who supported us with sponsors for the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge just over 3 weeks ago. All donations have now been collected and today we were able to hand over a cheque for just over £400 to Baby Basics Bolton and Bury. That money will go directly to helping vulnerable mums and their babies in the local area by providing basic essentials in a starter kit. You will never meet those you have helped but know that when they receive those moses baskets they will know someone cares xxxx

      Well we did it and survived!!! So proud of all us girlies really stepping out of our comfort zone, conquering fears and pushing ourselves to complete the challenge. It was tough; starting off in brilliant sunshine and finishing off with a thunderstorm and heavy rain (with a few midge bites, wobbly knees and blisters in between). Baby Basics is an amazing organisation who provide vital items for babies in desperate times, you have help to ease the burden during these times. Thank you again xx

      Well, we're nearly there with reaching our target funds and that's down to you so a big thank you again. We are all doing our last minute checks of making sure we have the right items packed for the challenge. The route is mapped out and we are feeling positive.
