Super cute baby clothes folding time!

We were watching the rain this afternoon wondering if we could actually get to the baby bank as reports of traffic and floods poured in (geddit)!:) But the rain stopped and through wonder of feet and bike three of us managed to get to the Cornerstone church without being stuck on the road.

On arrival Adam, who volunteers at the baby bank, had everything setout for us already and explained what needed to be done. Charlotte sprinted to the session so needed a nice cuppa to recover before starting - thankfully there were also biscuits available!!!!

We each had a 'station' where we unpacked bags of donations and folded them before organising them by age (mostly 0-3months) before these were packed and labeled. We got a lot done despite two late unsign ups but plenty was still left to finish! Next time!

This was such a fun session and we just couldn't stop admiring the cutest wear that was donated - including a full 'posh baby' set that was just adorable!

Thank you for showing up Kathryn and Charlotte!
