Tiny Togs For Tiny Tots
Can you help local firm collect for PreemiesUK?
Do you have any knitting needles, wool, buttons or ribbons to support a charity for premature babies?y
Lodge Brothers & Wickenden Funeral Directors in Northfield Avenue are local co-ordinators for Preemies UK, which supplies hospitals with tiny clothes for premature babies.
They're looking for donations to help volunteers make items of bedding and clothing.
Kim McLaughlin from Ealing Branch and Valerie Perkins from Brentford Branch will collect the knitted items from local volunteers from the community and care homes and supply materials and patterns to those who want to take part. Or there will be collection boxes in the branches to drop items off.
Donated items will be collected and then sent to Preemies’ headquarters to be distributed to over 100 hospitals
Paul Bye, District Manager for Lodge Brothers, said: “This is a great cause and our branches are ideally placed to act as a reception points. We will provide materials and patterns, but will gratefully receive any donations of wool, buttons or ribbons that we can pass on to the volunteers.”
Preemies UK is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to keep neonatal intensive care units across the country supplied with ‘tiny togs for tiny tots’. The charity relies on volunteers as the smaller-sized garments are not produced by any major companies.
