Help bag cash for parenting group
A PARENTS’ support group is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Cheshire Parenting Collective CIC is one of three groups bidding for votes to win up to £4,000 in grants.
The social enterprise provides emotional and practical support to local parents, from pregnancy to toddlerhood.
Volunteers organise drop-in groups, a baby carrier library, reusable nappy kit hire and a Fourth Trimester group for new and expectant parents.
It runs these events at Ash Grove Children’s Centre and Broken Cross Children’s Centre.
With funding from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative, Cheshire Parenting Collective CIC hopes to add more slings and carriers to its lending library and train more volunteers to support local families.
Ellie Thouret, director at Cheshire Parenting Collective CIC, said: “We are thrilled to be involved in this fantastic initiative.
“We help around 100 local parents each month, and with support from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme, we can reach even more.
“We hope local families will get out there and vote for our project.”
