How #teddytenner is helping Baby Bank Network
October 18, 2015
From Tuesday 13th October at 10am, Localgiving will be matching one-time donations pound-for-pound up to £10. Plus any monthly donations that are set up during Grow Your Tenner will be matched up to £10 for the first three months. So, with Gift Aid, a one-time donation of £10 made through Localgiving.com during Grow Your Tenner will generate £21.67 and a monthly donation of £10, over £60! All of which will make a huge, huge difference to everything that we’re doing here at Baby Bank Network.
We use your donations to buy new items to supplement or repair donated items. £10 for example will buy a new mattress for a Moses basket, teats for bottles, nappies, wipes and other toiletries. Whereas £50, well that’ll ensure we can provide a new cot mattress to our referrals or whole lot of toiletries, teats and treats for multiple families in need.

Last year Grow Your Tenner saw £0.5 million matched in just 38 days! While small and local charities make up 50 percent of the UK’s voluntary sector by number, they receive just 0.6 percent of the funding. Localgiving is working to turn this around and this annual campaign makes a huge impact to the bottom line of much-needed funds.
To join in this fantastic campaign, all you have to do is head to our Localgiving page:www.localgiving.com/babybanknetwork to double your generous donations. As always, we really appreciate each and every donation
