School uni­forms wanted by char­ity

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

SHOP­PERS have helped raise more than £12,000 for a Wok­ing­ham-based char­ity that gifts pre-loved baby and chil­dren’s items to fam­i­lies in need.

Over the past few months, vis­i­tors to Don’t Buy Her Flow­ers, an on­line gift bas­ket store, have made do­na­tions with ev­ery pur­chase. The money will help the work of First Days, based in Hurst.

The char­ity is ap­peal­ing for do­na­tions of school uni­forms as pupils pre­pare to go back to school in Septem­ber.

Items wanted in­clude non-lo­goed clothes, school uni­forms for St Crispin’s, The Holt, The For­est School, Emm­brook School, All Saints CofE Pri­mary School and Keep Hatch Pri­mary School.

School shoes are also wanted.

It is also ask­ing for pres­sure-fit stair gates and extenders, sterlis­ers (wa­ter or mi­crowave only), baby mon­i­tors, toi­letries in­clud­ing nappy bags, bar­rier cream, sham­poo and chil­dren’s tooth­brushes and tooth­paste.

And there is also a need for sim­ple wooden floor puz­zles aimed at tod­dlers aged 18-months up­wards.

Do­na­tions can only be made be­tween 10am and noon on Satur­days at its ware­house in Broadwater Lane, Hurst, and th­ese are the only items it is re­quest­ing. So­cial dis­tanc­ing rules should be ad­hered to. For more de­tails, visit: www.first­
