Providing Essential Transport for a Mum

Following the donation of the double buggy (and additional travel cot) -this is the response we received ……… “Oh my word, the kindness of people!
I have just delivered the double buggy (almost brand new) to our parent and she was absolutely thrilled! I relieved the lovely lady of a travel cot while I was there as well. Thank you guys again. We at school have been absolutely blown away by your response.”

We couldn’t do this without your generosity of donating pre-loved items such as these – so thank you. You can see how much difference it makes to someone in need.
