Thank you so much to Dulux for the vouchers you have given us to pass on to our families. Here is another happy family getting paint to decorate the children’s’ bedrooms.
The green tokens from Waitrose Kingsthorpe raised a huge £268 for the month of March.
Thank you to everyone who has chosen to support us and thank you to Waitrose Kingsthorpe for nominating our charity. This will help us support much needed families in Northampton.
We are delighted to welcome another group of volunteers to Home-Start Northampton.
Our new additions finished their preparation course last week and our trustees, Jenny and Angela, were on hand to present their well deserved certificates. Welcome to the team!
Thank you to Amazon Daventry for their very generous donation towards our volunteer training and support programme.
Volunteers are at the core of what we do, visiting families in their own homes weekly to provide friendship and support when and where needed, so it’s important that they are well looked after.
A huge THANK YOU to DASA at Barclaycard Northampton who have supported Home-Start Northampton throughout the year. They have raised an incredible amount of money …. In excess of £7,000. A special thank you must go to Andy Wood who has been a great support to our charity. Our Scheme Manager Bernie Barnes and PR Trustee Angela Draper went to receive the cheque just before Christmas which was presented by Marc Jagger Head of DASA – BPS. They were also invited to judge the department gingerbread house decorating competition which proved a difficult task as you can see by the photos! The teams were having great fun and a lot of competitive spirit was shown! The team kindly donated more money and the houses were donated to some of our families after the competition.
