Our first every project supported officially as Hookers and Clickers was local charity, Leeds Baby Bank, who support families in and around Leeds who are in urgent need of baby essentials.
Leeds Baby Bank work on a referral basis and are currently based at Unit 4, Upper Mall, St John’s Centre, Leeds. To check out more of their work please visit their website here.
Our jolly group of Hookers and Clickers supported the charity with the following items over a duration of approximately 3 to 4 months:
600 handmade cot blankets
700 handmade clothing items ranging from jumpers, cardigans, hats, scarves and mitts to anything in between.
As the charity was in urgent need to complete outstanding referrals at the time, we also raised sufficient funds to buy 7 cot beds and mattresses as well as providing a £500 cash donation.
