"Helping sure start Kirkby"

About: Kirkby East Children's Centre

(as a volunteer/advocate),

As a volunteer I've always had a passion to set up a constituted fundraising group. After trying so hard to set the group up on my street so we could raise money for a community centre unfortunately nobody on the street was as passionate about it like I was so I turned all my efforts to the place I love to volunteer at and that is my local sure start centre in Kirkby. I am extremely excited that I have set up an official constituted group called busy mums r us. It's been hard work but I really can't wait to start fundraising with my fantastic team of parents. The money will help the families of kirkby to lower cost trips and exciting presents off santa and other exciting things. To be able to give something back to sure start for the fantastic service they provide is an absolute honor. Busy mums r us has got an exciting future with all the exciting fundraising events we have planned.

Wow this is fantastic and such a great story to hear, 'Mum's r us' sounds amazing and I am glad the Children's Centre are supporting you with this, I hope the group continues to develop and please do let the centre know what else we can support with. Thank you for your time as you volunteer, without our very valued volunteers we could not do all we do in any of our centres, you are all the backbone of the centres and we thank you so much for the support and hard work you put in day after day.
