Little Village Wandsworth: 1000 families reached

Little Village Wandsworth supported its 1000th family this week, and as we hit this bittersweet milestone we want to celebrate the incredible generosity and kindness that underpins our work.

Since our first branch in Wandsworth sent its first referral out in April 2016, it has gifted on items worth over £610,000. Between them, our amazing donors in south west London have donated:

  • Enough moses baskets and cots to stretch from Balham Tube to Tooting Bec tube station
  • Enough babygrows to need a washing line as long as 3 football pitches
  • Enough buggies to stretch the length of 26 double decker buses
  • Enough high chairs to reach the top of the Wembley Arch

What an amazing show of generosity and solidarity. These items have been passed on with love and kindness, and we know that this makes a huge difference to the parents we meet. Time and again the feedback we receive is about how great our volunteers made people feel, as well as talking about the quality of the items.

Little Village exists to make it as easy as possible for families to support one another. We’re a movement of parents, committed to ensuring every family is able to give their kids the best possible start in life.

Thank you for being part of our work. You ARE Little Village. And you are amazing.
