Our 11th delivery of our ‘bags of happiness’
Whew! Our 11th delivery of our ‘bags of happiness’ will be going out this week. We have had such lovely messages from parents and children alike thanking us for sending these out since the very beginning of lock down . The kids love the toys, books and sensory items and the parent/ carers are so grateful that we haven’t forgotten them and their children are always foremost in our thoughts.
We can’t hold any of our activities or fundraising events and thought these bags would be a lovely way to show how much we care.
At the beginning we literally raided our charity shops and warehouse as we had no budget for this but we have received funding from The Talbot Village Trust, The Wooden Spoon Charity and Asda Poole for which we are really thankful. ( nothing is ever taken out from donations for wages or overheads, our CEO’s chose to earn the same minimum wage as everyone else. )
We are so grateful to our volunteers who make this possible by packing and delivering as 230 bags is quite a feat.
We are so lucky to have so much support.
