Weʼve raised £55 to offer breastfeeding workshops & support for pregnant mums suffering domestic violence
- Woolwich, London, UK
- Funded on Saturday, 17th June 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In March Central Greenwich Children's Centres received the UNICEF Baby Friendly Award, a global programme set up by UNICEF and the World Health Organisation to provide a practical and effective way for health services and children’s centres to improve the care provided for pregnant women, mothers and babies. In the UK the initiative works by supporting breastfeeding and strengthening parent-infant relationships.
We actively promote and support breasfeeding and we would like to offer workshops to local vulnerable pregnant mums to support them to get breasfeeding off to a good start, increase their knowledge & confidence and provide support & expertise to overcome breastfeeding challenges if encountered. We also would like to offer a monthly breastfeeding support group where mums can share their experience particularly those suffering domestic violence.
A 2 hour workshop delivered by experts costs £30 per participant and we need to raise funds.
Christel Warn, our Fundraising Coordinator, will attempt a cycle challenge to raise funds. She will cycle from London to Paris (over 400 km) in 3 days from 23rd June untill 25th June 2017.
We would be grateful if you could sponsor her and make this project happen. Every little helps!
Thank you in advance for your support

Hello, I have just acquired a new pair of cycling short and although it is not the most sexy piece of clothing I have bought, it is comfortable. Let's hope it does do the job! Trainingwise I haven't yet done a long cycling session but I do cross training (mainly swimming and running) to strengthen the legs. Sarah, thank you for reminding me about the Go Pro. I don't have one but will borrow one and try to create a small video to show the best part of the journey. Thank you again for sponsoring me. I really appreciate it. Cheers Christel
