Latest batch of parent bags delivered to Nectar

We were delighted to drop off the latest batch of 100 parent bags to Nectar with our patron Katy Daley-Mclean MBE!

When a child is involved in an accident or taken seriously ill, their parents/carers drop everything and go with them to hospital. This can often leave parents hundreds of miles from home with none of their possessions. We provide the parent bags so parents have a least he bare essentials to get through a few days – they can have a wash, freshen up and feel a bit better about themselves before important meetings with doctors about their child’s care, or before they face some of the many challenges life in hospital can throw at a family!

The parent bags make such a difference, so thank you so much to those of you who have donated via our online store to pay for some of the bags to be put together for the team and the families they help in their time of need. If you want to hear how much of an impact the bags have on families, read this edition of our Showcase Saturday!
