At the end of last week, we loaded up the van with our first delivery of Milly Bags to leave the new unit.
It was a joy to be able to reverse the van into the unit and just place the bags into the back. Previously we have had to have a military operation in full force in order to safely carry 20 heavy Milly Bags down 4 flights of stairs to waiting transport! Today we were very sleek and very quick to load up the bags and quickly be on our way to Ward L31 at Leeds Children’s Hospital.
We were greeted by 2 lovely ladies on arrival and it was so heartwarming to hear how they much our Milly Bags are appreciated by all the families who receive them. They told us about a family from Hull who were admitted without any belongings at all, and how they were so overwhelmed to receive a bag containing items to help them during the admission period and beyond.
This is the very reason we do what we do, to be able to make a difference during what is one of the worst times in a parents life, for us is an honour and a privilege.
Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to do what we do, we could not do it without the help and support of everyone around us.
