Holy Trinity Church has recently become an official partner of the Baby Basics charity, joining a growing network of Baby Basics centres

Baby Basics is a volunteer-led project aiming to support new mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby. The charity started at The Kings Centre in Sheffield in the spring of 2009.

Baby Basics provides much needed essentials and equipment to mothers and families who are unable to provide these items for themselves; including, but not limited to, teenage mums, people seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking.

Working with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups to provide support directly where it is most needed, Baby Basics volunteers lovingly collect, sort and package a ‘Moses Basket’ of clothing, toiletries and essential baby equipment as an attractive gift to new mothers.

The aim is to help these new mothers practically and generously, demonstrating the love of God through our care.

As the pictures show we have now packed several Moses baskets ready to distribute. A big thank you to everyone who has contributed items for the baskets or helped prepare and pack them.
