Latest batch of Parent bags donated to NECTAR

We were donated to deliver the latest batch of parent bags to the Nectar team’s Headquarters in Newcastle last week!!

Every family that is transferred to one of the Newcastle Hospitals from across our region by the Nectar Team receive one of these bags. When a child is take critically ill or involved in an accident their parents drop everything to go with their child and can often end up 100s of miles from home with none of their possessions. We aim to get hem through a few days of life in hospital with these bags of the bare essentials, so they can concentrate on the care of their child.

Each bag contains:

  • Shower gel
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • A comb
  • A bobble
  • A facecloth
  • A Team Evie notebook and pen
  • A drink and a snack
  • A ‘Fudge’ soft toy giraffe

The parent bags make such a difference, so thank you so much to those of you who have donate 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 episode of our Showcase Saturday!
