With a friend, I am setting up a new Baby Basics charity in Leicester. Baby Basics is a volunteer led charity that provides much needed essentials and equipment to mothers and families who are unable to provide these items for themselves.
It is so heartbreaking to know that many new mums and families don't have a safe place for their baby to sleep or even enough clothes and nappies for their newborn. I can't imagine being in that isolating situation and I hope the charity will make a big difference in their lives. The health professionals are crying out for help such as this and i'm so excited at this opportunity to help.
The money raised will go towards the set up costs of the project so that we can get started as soon as possible. Once we have set up we will be aiming to help several families a week giving out moses basket starter packs, equipment such as cots and buggies as well as bundles of clothes and toiletries.
