Mummy's Star 8th Birthday!
On Friday 18th June, Mummy's Star will celebrate 8 years of supporting women and their families through pregnancy, birth, loss and beyond.
This is an important milestone for the charity, especially after all the additional difficulties and uncertainty for our families brought about by COVID, and the ongoing lockdowns.
So, we would like to invite all our families, supporters, and the public to get involved to mark this special day and help us raise funds for our much needed Online Forum for Mums. There are lots of things you could do to get involved, such as:
Making a donation directly to our birthday fundraiser.
Wearing a star and donating £2. Why not take a picture or make a short video to share on social media, and encourage your friends and family to do the same!
Hosting a coffee morning or doorstep cake sale.
Setting a family challenge. You could walk, scoot or bounce on a trampoline.
Setting up an online fundraiser and sharing it across social media.
Adding a donate button to your Facebook page and sharing it with your friends.
All the funds raised through the birthday celebrations will help us monitor and manage our much needed Online Forum for Mums. The Forum is used by over 470 mums, whether they are actively asking questions and engaging, or just reading and absorbing it all in the background.
It offers women a safe place where they can ask about anything, share their thoughts and get support day or night. Mums often tell us it is a lifeline and an invaluable part of their support.
Rachel, one of our mums, said:
It provided information and it was also reassuring to know that there was a whole community out there that I could reach out to!
