THE PRINCESS OF WALES WILL VISIT THE BABY BANK

Windsor

Monday 24th April 2023

The Princess of Wales will visit The Baby Bank in Windsor on Monday 24th April to hear about the crucial work the organisation carries out to support families in need from Windsor, Maidenhead, Slough, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and the surrounding areas.

The Baby Bank was founded in 2015 by two mothers from Windsor and strives to provide essential items to families facing financial hardship. The charity provides a range of objects for families including new-born starter kits, school uniforms, nappies, buggies and beds. Donations are provided by the general public, retailers and local suppliers.

Families are referred to the charity through a large network of 150 referral partners which include Helping Hands, social services, schools, food banks and Refugee organisations. Since its opening, The Baby Bank has supported over 21,500 individuals and have seen a year-on-year increase in referrals.

During her visit to The Baby Bank, the Princess will meet volunteers and take part in sorting donations and packing referrals, and hear how the organisations works with local partners, including health visitors and midwives to provide support to families in need.

Her Royal Highness has been a long-standing supporter of baby banks having visited many across the country. In the summer of 2020, the Princess also brought together nineteen British brands and retailers to donate over 10,000 new items to more than 40 baby banks nationwide, operated by Little Village, Baby Basics and AberNecessities.
