Baby Basics Northampton Triumph over Lockdown Difficulties
Written by Chris Harris on May 16, 2020
Baby Basics Northampton is a charity which aims to support families who are in greatest need in Northants. Moses baskets are filled with essential baby essentials to new mums in need.
They receive referrals from health professionals such as health visitors and midwives and rely on donations of second-hand but good condition baby clothes, towels, bedding etc and new toiletries such as breast pads, toothbrushes, shampoo and nappies.
However, due to Coronavirus restrictions and fear of contamination, Baby Basics have been unable to use their second-hand donations and gifts. To cope, they have been asking for monetary donations from the public and various funding grants so they can purchase brand new items for the families they support.
So far, they have received massive support from the community, but more is always needed, particularly with demand for their services increasing.
Chris spoke to Mikki from Baby Basics about what they do and how you can help.
