Fast-growing bedroom furniture firm Bed Kingdom, with bases in Heckmondwike and Liversedge, is showing its support to the local community by donating 35 cot mattresses to Rainbow Baby Bank.
The Heckmondwike-based charity supports vulnerable families living in Kirklees. The focus of their charitable activity is to provide items to families and mothers-to-be in need to prevent or relieve poverty. In particular, Rainbow Baby Bank supports families that are struggling financially, fleeing domestic abuse, experiencing homelessness, seeking asylum and who have escaped human trafficking.
The team also works collaboratively with other charities and professionals, such as health visitors, midwives, social workers, local schools and councils, to make sure essential items reach those who need them.
Sam Cottam, baby bank manager at Rainbow Baby Bank, explains: “We provide a brand-new mattress with every single cot, cot-bed and toddler bed referral to try and reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SADS). It makes up a large proportion of our already stretched budget, and we are so grateful for Bed Kingdom’s continued support.
“We are always in need of donations, particularly double prams, buggies, cot blankets, cold water sterilisers, and boys and girls winter clothes up to age five. Donations can be dropped off at Rainbow Baby Bank Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 2pm, or we can arrange collection within Kirklees.”
Levon Hall, marketing manager at Bed Kingdom, adds: “We donated ten cot mattresses earlier this year, and due to demand, we’ve just donated another 25. We are proud to be able to show this care to our local community and support people who are truly in need. We plan to keep supporting Rainbow Baby Bank by helping them spread the word and making essential donations in the future. They are a selfless team who work hard to make a huge difference to people’s lives.”
