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.
Please help us support more breastfeeding families. The knowledge, information and support we give to mothers is free of charge but reaching the families we support costs us money. Lack of support is one of the main reasons many mothers stop breastfeeding before they want to. We’ll use your money to support mothers and babies and help them meet their breastfeeding goals.
Hi, I'm Kerry, listed solo Leader at LLL Chelmsford. In our first year, I supported mothers across Essex in over 300 helping situations ranging from our local group meetings to social media support, text message, local calls and the charity's national helpline. At our Chelmsford group, donations have allowed us to stock a library of books to lend to mothers on topics in line with our philosophy and we have a number of paid members; mothers who have generously given funds to pay forward the support they received. But we now need to secure the future of the group by raising funds and spreading the word about the support we offer and the costs we have to cover.
All our Leaders are volunteers and sign an annual statement of commitment to serve the organisation and to never profit personally from their Leader role. The National Charity has only two part-time paid employees, all other personnel are volunteers, including the Council of Directors and Trustees. So you can be sure all funds raised are going right to the families who need our timely support. Thank you.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our local group via our Just Giving page. This allows us to continue supporting women across Essex on their breastfeeding journeys. If you have received a call, come to a meet or received a reply to your breastfeeding query from LLL Chelmsford, please consider paying it forward. The support is free, but the means of providing it costs money. Thank you xxx
