During September we received the usual requests for food, uniforms, shoes and baby items, These included a cot bed and mattress, a car seat and two high chairs. At the request of a Headteacher we paid towards a school trip for a child to join the rest of the class. This is so worthwhile and for many children it is the only opportunity for them to experience travel during their childhood. At the request of the Social Workers we paid towards holiday care for five children where there are social problems.
The totals for the month are 30 families with 54 children amounting to £4,933. 51. Included in this amount is £1,292. 01 for Sensory Equipment for the Happy Hatchlings Nursery which was paid out of the Ladies fundraising.
