We were delighted to hear of the safe arrival of Baby Sussex in the early hours of today and want to extend our love and good wishes to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they start their journey as parents.
At the tender age of one day old, this little chap has already made a huge difference to the lives of many of the families we support here at Little Village.
Harry and Meghan asked people to support charities, including us, instead of sending them baby gifts, and we’ve been blown away by the response. As well as hundreds of items like toys, nappies and other essentials, we’ve received £5000 in donations – which is the amount it will cost us to buy new Moses basket mattresses for the 700 newborns we expect to see this year.
We’re now hoping you can help us to reach our fundraising target of £9000 so we can support even more families in crisis. To give you an idea:
💙£10 will pay for a warm welcome and a cup of tea for mums visiting us.
💙£25 will buy a new cot mattress
💙£40 will help us to service a pre-loved pram.
