NMSF Caring Week 2017
Following a successful ‘pilot’ for Caring Week with Oaklands School in 2016, we are delighted to announce that we are extending activities across the Country.
National Maternity Support Foundation (NMSF), also known as Jake’s Charity, helps to keep maternity services, safe, accessible and well resourced. It also ensures that parents have all the relevant information at the right time.
As a way to raise awareness of the excellent work of midwives and obstetricians, we introduced Caring Week, to highlight the importance of the best possible care and its positive impact.
This year, NMSF Caring Week will run from the 29th October to 4th November. Across that week we are asking supporters to suggest and carry out ‘Caring Activities’ for which the children (and parents) will be sponsored.
Activities can range from, helping an elderly neighbour, helping with the gardening, baking for the family, walking a dog, taking out the rubbish - anything that is caring and thoughtful
The children will also have the opportunity to create drawings, paintings, sketches and/or a written paragraph of favourite childhood memories. These will be displayed by the school and the best examples will be awarded a prize and feature in the second edition of the Little Book of Happy Memories. The book will act as a permanent record for Caring Week and we will be asking parents to contribute their happy childhood memories.
We would be extremely grateful if you'd like to take part in NMSF Caring Week 2017.
