Our amazing friends at Voluptuous Vintage https://www.voluptuousvintage.com/ have given us £1400,
We can't thank them enough for doing this! This is such a huge amount of money for us! To put it in to perspective how much this will do for us. If it is all used solely for postage it will enable us to send 241 boxes to hospitals that will contain 35 packs in each. There are 237 hospitals in the UK that stock our gown packs, so this means as a result of this donation we can send a box to every UK hospital we supply. That is 8,443 families that will be given the option of dressing their precious baby. Thank you so so much!
