Stockley Park Christmas Donation Drive 2020
This year the Stockley Park Christmas Donation Drive invites you to support the patients of the TOPAZ midwifery team, based at nearby Hillingdon Hospital and the residents of YMCA St Pauls, based in Hayes. Continuing with the 2020 theme, things are being done a little different this festive season.
The TOPAZ Midwifery Team
The TOPAZ midwifery team works with mothers who have complex psychological and/or additional social needs throughout their pregnancy and postnatal period enabling them and their baby to feel safe and to not have to deal with issues alone. The Team caseload their care enabling mothers to feel confident and supported throughout the antenatal period and once baby is born. The NHS is unable to provide essentials for these vulnerable mothers so the team is reliant on private donations. in 2019 we were able to donate practical gifts to help the mothers care for their children, from babysuits, nappies, wipes, to shampoo, baby muslin squares and toys. The team were overwhelmed with the generosity shown by Stockley Park occupiers as the items all made such a difference to the lives of their patients.
We are unable to accept gifts as we did last year, so for 2020 we will be able to donate funds using JustGiving. The monies will be going directly to the TOPAZ team so they can purchase the required goods directly. To donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/topazteam.
YMCA St Paul’s Group
The YMCA St Paul’s Group is based in Hayes and provides housing for young people whilst supporting families in the local community. Many of those who rely on the YMCA will not receive gifts this Christmas as they may have little in way of a support network around them. Last year we requested gifts to be delivered to The Management Centre and you did us proud with the generosity shown.
For 2020, an Amazon wishlist has been put together for those who need our help. Items can be found and purchased from Amazon, with them being sent directly to the YMCA in time for Christmas.
