Gloucestershire Bundles in appeal for free nappies

'Claim your free nappies then give them to us' is the plea going out to shoppers from a Gloucester-based support group.
Gloucestershire Bundles, which helps teenage mums and families in crisis, has lodged an appeal with Sainsbury's customers to take advantage of a special offer currently being run by the supermarket chain.
A spokeswoman for the support group, which is based at Podsmead, said: "Sainsbury's are currently running an offer where, if shoppers spend more than £50 in-store or online, they can get a pack of Little Ones nappies for free.
"We're asking people, if they shop at the store and don't need the nappies, could they still add them to their shopping list anyway, then donate them to us?"
The not-for-profit organisation, which is staffed and run wholly by volunteers, works tirelessly to source and provide much-needed clothing, nursery equipment and toiletries for those mums and families most in need in the Gloucester, Quedgeley, Kingsway and Hardwicke area.
Those who benefit from the service include people suffering domestic violence, temporary carers, those who have suffered a crisis at home, such as a fire or flood, teenage mums and families simply struggling to make ends meet.
The Sainsbury's offer ends on Tuesday (April 16), so Gloucestershire Bundles is asking weekend shoppers to add the nappies to their shopping lists then pass them on to help those mums and families in need of a little help.
