Helping the Baby Bank

Help provide essentials to vulnerable families

Description

The Baby Bank helps families in extreme need with everyday essentials such as nappies, wipes, school uniform and shoes, as well as larger items such as cots and buggies. They are completely volunteer run and rely on donations of new items and good quality second hand clothes, baby care equipment and furniture. During the Covid-19 crisis, demand for the Baby Bank's help has increased dramatically.

We can help by sorting through donations, preparing bundles ready for delivery and cleaning donated furniture.

Meet opposite Monello Hairdressing and please bring your head-torch with you - the storage facility has poor lighting. This task is indoors and face coverings are mandatory.

The task is listed for an hour but there may be the opportunity to stay and help for longer.

Please note your Area Activator Amy will not be present at the task and the task may need to be cancelled if we do not find an experienced GoogGym member to lead. If necessary, notice of cancellation will be sent by email no later than 9pm the night before. Please check your junk mail as well to make sure you're kept in the loop.

Date and time

09:30 - 10:30 Monday, 23rd of November 2020

Sign up by 8:00pm on Sunday 22nd November so we can let Amy know who to expect.

Walkable

As you will make your own way to the task, feel free to walk or run as you wish.
