Myself along with the Asda Burnden Park and Farnworth community champions Lorraine and Carolina have been very busy over the last few weeks making toilet bags and donating toiletries to go into the bags for the local Baby Basics Bolton & Bury charity.
This volunteer-led project works with midwives and health professionals to support new mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby. The charity provides the families with Moses baskets which are filled with essentials such as nappies, toiletries in the bags for mum, knitted matinee coats, cardigans bootees, and other much-needed essentials. Baby Basics lovingly collect, sort and package this equipment as an attractive gift to new mothers.
