We may not be putting the Christmas tree up just yet, but with Christmas quickly approaching the team at Baby Basics are starting to get prepared for their Christmas Gift Appeal. And this year Howells Solicitors are proud to be supporting the cause by being an official collection point for gift donations in Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley.
Who are Baby Basics?
Baby Basics is a volunteer-led project aiming to support new mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby. Baby Basics provides much needed essentials and equipment to mothers and families who are unable to provide these items for themselves; including but not limited to teenage mums, people seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking.
What is the Christmas Gift Appeal?
Many families will be struggling this Christmas, and every child deserves to have a gift under the Christmas tree. You can help make this happen. Each year Baby Basics supports families in need by providing them with brand new gifts for their children. The Baby Basics Christmas Gift Appeal aims to donate 500 presents, for children aged 0-5yrs, for struggling families in the local area.
When is the Christmas Appeal?
The Baby Basics Christmas Campaign 2023 will be running from 21st October – 27th November, with gifts packaged and donated to families in December.
How Can You Get involved?
Baby basics are looking for donations of small gifts, within a budget of £5-£10, suitable for children ages 0 – 5 years old. They need a wide range of gifts suitable for the different ages.
