Urgent; Clothe the naked, Mothers and Babies Needing Clothes and Baby Things

I got the following note from Ronni, our dedicated volunteer, who gives up 3 days a week, and most of the rest of her time to helping Mothers in need. Our funds are at an all-time low, but we are busy enough that we now have lots of expectant and new Mums needing maternity and baby goods. So this is an urgent appeal for help with these goods:

Hi Clare,
Ann reminded me yesterday she asked for size 18 winter coat. She also needs size 7 to 8 winter shoes or boots.
Belinda asked last week and this week for large clothes, Her baby is due in October and she has no clothes to fit other than what she was wearing. Maternity size 20. We have almost no adult clothing. Belinda also asked if something could be done about her bed, hers is broken.
Serena needs a buggy, and was told by midwives to get breast pump.
Two other mums also need light buggies (as when you can't afford the train you travel everywhere by bus and big buggies don't get on the bus) suitable for newborns (Ed's note: i.e. they can recline lie flat not just sloping back).
We also urgently need at least 2 cots (with all the screws and parts).
Boys Baby Clothes: We are very short of 0 to 3 and 3 to 6 months old boys clothes and the few we have left are not in very good condition.

  1. Dear Clare, keep up the wonderful work.

    I put a note on my own blog. Let me know if it is acceptable for people to order actual items from Amazon and send them to you (you need to indicate a delivery address) as has happened before for the Sisters in Glasgow.

    If hard cash is preferable, you can indicate that too!

    God bless

  2. Thanks very much for your help. We'll let you know how it goes. We are fine with items being ordered from our wish list http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/registry.html?ie=UTF8&type=wishlist&id=2M083MKND2154
    or with donations of good quality second hand items, or cash, which is always helpful, but particularly this week!
