Northamptonshire charity Baby Basics has received a £1,000 donation from Amazon in Daventry.
Baby Basics supports mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical challenges of caring for a new baby. Some new parents are unable to afford practical items like nappies, toiletries and baby clothes.
Baby Basics also supports parents who could be teenage mums, people seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking.
Baby Basics provides a Moses Basket full of essential items for the first three months of a baby’s life, as well as a few treats for mum. Each basket is supplied with a brand new mattress and the Amazon donation will go towards purchasing these baskets.
Speaking on the donation, Gareth Davies, Site Leader at Amazon Daventry, said: “We are proud to support such a brilliant charity within our community. The work Baby Basics does to help children and families across Northamptonshire is very commendable. We hope this donation helps Baby Basics continue its vital work.”
Micki Carey-Slater from Baby Basics added: “We are very grateful to Amazon Daventry for this generous donation. Every donation to the organisation means more support for the mothers and families inNorthamptonshire. Starting a new family is daunting for all new parents but those who struggle financially are at a major disadvantage. As an organisation, we aim to support new families with practical help to ensure all mothers have a fair start to parenthood.
The donation forms part of the “Amazon In The Community” programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
