Gloucestershire Bundles in desperate plea for cots and stairgates

A project started by Gloucester mums and grandmothers, which provides a lifeline to local families and parents, is in desperate need of nursery equipment, and has launched an appeal through its Facebook page asking for donations of cots and stairgates in particular.

Since March 2010, Gloucestershire Bundles has been helping pregnant women and families in difficulty.

The project, which is wholly run by volunteers, works tirelessly to source and provide much-needed clothing, equipment and toiletries for those mums and families most in need in the Gloucester, Quedgeley, Kingsway and Hardwicke area.

Once part of the Gloucester and District branch of the National Childbirth Trust (NCT), the project formerly known as Gloucester Little Bundles has grown rapidly, seeing it become a separate entity in its own right. 

It continues to receive an increasing number of donations from generous members of the public, including baby and children's clothing, nursery equipment - such as cots, pushchairs, highchairs, sterlising units, baby carriers, stairgates, bed guards and monitors - as well as new-mother and baby toiletry packs, which include essential items such as nappies, nappy bags, baby wipes, baby bath, lotion and shampoo.

* If you have any outgrown baby or children's clothing, unwanted nursery equipment - in particular, stairgates and cots (must be in good condition) - or would like to donate items for the toiletry packs, go to the donations section of the Gloucestershire Bundles website.

Donations can be dropped off at the Big Yellow Self-Storage Company on Eastern Avenue by appointment.
