Charity of the Year
Every year during the annual meeting in May the Parish Council select a Charity to support through the events it holds and the hire of the meeting room. For 2017/18 the chosen charity is Baby Basics MK.
Baby Basics MK is a volunteer-led charity dedicated to supporting families who are in greatest need in Milton Keynes. Baby Basics is sponsored by King’s Church MK, who originally gave birth to it before it became a charity in its own right.
They rely on donations of second-hand, but good condition, baby essentials. These are lovingly made into gift packages that give families everything they will need to get started with a new baby, and continue to support them where needed.
Families may be referred to them by health professionals, such as health visitor and midwifes, and local churches.
