The items that are needed are: Baby milk (up to six months); nappies and baby wipes; Children’s school materials (e.g. pencils, writing pads); women’s hygiene products; bandages and dressings; non-prescription medicines (e.g. pain killers, laxatives); children’s winter boots; baby clothes (new only); winter blankets or duvets.
Please leave your items in the church with a member of staff or a volunteer by Sunday 1st September at the latest.
