A charity run by a Northwood mum has just been given a £10,000 grant so it can continue helping underprivileged babies in the area.
Samantha Negbenebor, a mum of three from Northwood, announced that her charity, Tiny Toes Tiny Feet, received the grant from the National Community Fund last month.
The charity aims to help local mothers and families facing financial hardship, as well as families fleeing domestic abusive environments, support their young children by providing second-hand baby items.
Samantha told Northwood&RuislipNews: “I was thrilled we managed to get the grant. It’ll help us with so many aspects of the charity; we’ve now secured a storage space at Rivertech in Rickmansworth, where we can store the items and mums who’re collecting them can come grab a coffee; we can also now hold two fundraising events later in the year.”
Samantha, who is a professional CIPD Qualified Recruiter, is also hoping to expand on the type of help the charity can provide mums.
She is aiming to offer programmes that will help mothers get back into work if faced with unemployment by giving tips on professional CV writing, interview technique and career advice.
She set up Tiny Toes Tiny Feet in 2015 after helping out a young girl she mentored who desperately needed baby items by rallying her friends together to donate their unwanted baby items. She realised there was a real desire for mums to pass on their unwanted baby items to families who really need them.
The charity is always looking for volunteers to help out, whether that’s by delivering items to families, gathering and sorting stock, or operational volunteering.
