One Vision Housing donate £500 to help launch local Baby Bank project
One Vision Housing (OVH), part of The Sovini Group, has helped launch a Bootle based ‘Baby Bank’ project with a £500 donation.
Organised in partnership with Sefton Council for Voluntary Services (CVS) ‘Material Matters’ project, the Kindfulness Coffee Club’s Baby Bank initiative operates similarly to a food bank and provides starter packs for expectant parents in need.
OVH’s donation has enabled the Baby Bank to purchase essential items in bulk at a discounted rate, giving them the opportunity to increase their service offer. Families can access the service from referrals by Health Visitors and local family centres.
Inspired by the housing organisation’s contribution, employees of OVH and parent company, The Sovini Group, also held a donation drive for baby items which were recently given to the Baby Bank. Items included nappies, baby grows, bottles, a Moses basket and more.
Ian Mitchell, Managing Director of One Vision Housing, said:
“OVH are honoured to help the Kindfulness Coffee Club with their newly launched Baby Bank project. The Baby Bank provides much needed support to residents in the local area and also helps promote OVH’s vision of creating thriving, inclusive communities.”
Kindfulness Coffee Club Manager, Mandy Lewtas, said:
“As a small organisation we often struggle to obtain enough funding to continue our work. One Vision Housing’s generous donations have allowed us to continue delivering our services to families who need us the most.”
