The team at Escapade are excited to announce a new charity partnership with First Day’s Children’s Charity.
First Days was established in 2013 in response to needs in the local community in Berkshire. Quite simply: there were people with stuff they didn’t need and people who desperately needed it. The charity grew very quickly and now, nearly eight years later, it has staff and volunteers and have helped over 10,000 children, and distributed over 250 tonnes of donated goods.
A spokesperson at First Days Charity says, “At First Days we give choice, restore dignity and empower families who are living with low income or are experiencing financial hardship. We believe that all children should: be safe in their home, and out about. They should be confident in school. They should have lots of fun. We help facilitate that.
“We provide everyday essentials for children who need them. We distribute school uniforms, new baby essentials, travel equipment, toiletries, safety items, furniture, toys and books.”
After spending a day with the team back in March, we were amazed by the dedication and passion amongst the team as well as the generosity from those who donated. It was clear to us that they had one focus – to make a difference.
We are looking forward to helping the First Day’s team in the future and contributing our time and support to ensure that they can continue to give vulnerable children and their families a future in the Berkshire area.
Each small act of kindness can make a huge difference, so to find out more about this amazing charity and head over to https://www.firstdays.net/about-us to see how you can show your support.
