In an effort to update this blog a bit more, I thought I’d tell you all a bit about the charity parties we’ve held over the last 7 months. As a not-for-profit group, we are in a fortunate position that we can help raise money for charities via our bi-annual sling parties.

The parties are like any normal sling meet, with sling hire, fit and advice, but with the addition of stalls, raffles, competitions, sling sales, photography, food & drink and interactive music sessions for the little ones.

At Christmas with the help of the wonderful Rainbright Photography (who donated all her proceeds from the event), we raised £445 for Lymphoma Association  (more info here on our facebook page).

Our summer party took place two weeks ago and we raised £240 for PANDAS Foundation (Pre and Post Natal Depression Advice and Support). In addition we raffled off a brand new  Little Frog ringsling that one of our librarians won and and raised £56 for Prostate Cancer Research . We have lots of fun at these events and hope we can continue them long into the future!
