News & Events

Donations of Gifts:


Her Centre has been very fortunate to receive donations of gifts for women and their children at our holiday celebration on Saturday the 15th December.


Mummy’s Gin Fund, which donated to us last year too, has sent even more presents this year, a really dazzling array of gifts, hugely welcomed to bring cheer to our families at a tough time of year. Thank you Helen for your support and the support of all your network!


Roses, the Woolwich branch of the Women’s Institute, also gave us some amazing presents towards the party, and made two of the team their guests of honour at their Christmas dinner last Thursday. Thanks to Louise and all the wonderful members of Roses!


The London Ambulance Service also donated bags of gifts for our party which is really kind of them. Thanks Nigel for your thoughtfulness!


And we are asking a few other generous local supporters, including St Marks Church who have given gifts to us for a number of years to instead look at giving us food vouchers for supermarkets, as some families will struggle especially with the recent shift to Universal Credit for those on benefits. Thanks for your long term support Mary and St. Marks!


Finally thanks to all our trustees, especially Sarah who got us the cake, lots of raffle prizes, and volunteers for face painting and henna!
