We are so excited to announce that we have been given the green light to leave some "Congratulations!" boxes at Jessops (our local maternity hospital) for new parents of babies with Down Syndrome.

This has been a real passion project for us as we've teamed up with Positive About Down Syndrome for copies of their Nobody Told Me book, Bear & Babe who have been amazing at making some newborn sets for our new members and Lush (Sheffield) who donated some lovely items for our families to pamper themselves. We've also packed some tea and literature so that there's plenty to enjoy.

We'd love it if local families could sponsor a box or even half a box. We're making 10 to start with and each box is £25 (or you could sponsor half a box for £12.50). If this is something you'd like to get involved in, please send a donation via our website. If you'd like to leave a note for the new parents, please write a note with your donation and we will pass that on! We love the personal touch.

Please note, any extra funds we receive above our 10 boxes will either go towards the next batch of boxes or towards hosting our Baby & Toddler Group that runs each week in Greenhill. Any donation amount is greatly received.

Thank you so much for supporting new families and helping them know they really are the lucky few!
