We are delighted to have donated £200 to Baby Basics Leicester, nearby to our Kingsbury Park development in Lutterworth.
The donation comes as part of our Christmas Wish campaign, in which we are donating £200 to five baby banks and charities local to our developments over the festive period.
Baby Basics Leicester is a volunteer-led charity aiming to support new mums and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby, and recently celebrated its 1000th referral.
Working with midwives, health visitors and other professionals, they provide Moses basket starter kits, clothes, toiletries, cots, buggies, highchairs and baby bouncers, as well as toys and books.
Kerry Jones, Sales Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting Baby Basics Leicester during the upcoming festive period. The pandemic has been especially challenging for baby banks and the vulnerable families they support, with Christmas often proving to be particularly difficult for those in need.
“At Mulberry Homes, we are committed to supporting, and forging lasting partnerships with, the communities local to our developments. We’re incredibly proud to be donating to a range of local baby banks and charities as part of our Christmas Wish campaign, bringing some festive joy during these difficult times.”
Laura Hutchinson, Chairperson of Baby Basics Leicester, said: “Baby Basics Leicester have had our busiest year yet and have been working throughout the pandemic. We help vulnerable families with the baby essentials and equipment they need when expecting a new baby or have a young child.
“Sadly, there has been a dramatic rise in the need for our service. We are very grateful for financial donations which will help us buy some brand-new cots so that babies have a safe place to sleep and some new snowsuits to keep babies warm this winter. Thank you, Mulberry Homes, for your support to make this possible!”
