At the Princess Project we want new mothers to know that they are valued and special; that each is a unique individual in her own right, made and loved by her Father in heaven. To this end we distribute beautiful gift baskets to mums in our community. Although these contain a few goodies for the baby, mostly they contain little gifts for the mums, ranging from hand creams and lip glosses to scented candles and eye masks!
We hold regular working parties at the Hub, putting these boxes together and making them look really special (each item in the boxes is lovingly and individually wrapped). The date of the next basket making evening is Tuesday 6th June, 7.30-9.30pm at 8 Fallowfield Close, Weavering, ME14 5TW. Do come along and help if you'd like to- the more the merrier.
If you would like to donate items for the boxes, then please do drop them in to the Park Wood office, where they will be gratefully received. We need:
Toiletries, such as shower gel and body lotion
Flannels and shower puffs
Individual small packs of tissues
Baby clothes 0-6 months, including hand knitted small items such as hats and bootees in neutral colours
First size nappies
Wrapping paper, tissue paper and ribbon in shades of purple/lilac
Please note that we want to bless the mums who receive these boxes, so we would kindly request that all donations are new, sealed (if toiletries) or with tags attached.
If you have recently had a baby and would like one of our baskets, or you know someone else who would, then drop into the office or contact us, and we will happily get one to you.
