Wylde Green Rotarians have been in action again and working with members of Wylde Green Inner Wheel, staff from Hart Office Supplies and friends, packed 150 Buddy Bags.
Buddy Bags make a tangible difference to children entering emergency accommodation, restoring a sense of safety and security to their lives. Each bag is a backpack that contains all the essential items a child needs. They include toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear. They also include comfort items such as a book, a photo frame and a teddy bear. A Buddy Bag is something a child can call their own, no matter where they go.
The Buddy Bag will also include a postcard addressed to the Foundation so children can write to let us know how their Buddy Bag has helped them and to say thank you.
The Buddy Bags are tailored to suit babies and children according to age groups and gender and cater specifically for children aged 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and 13-16 years old.
