Mummies paying it forward

Mary's House does not operate in isolation. We couldn’t provide our families with this safe haven without support from a whole range of people and organisations.  We like to think of it as the Mary's House family. One member of this family is Mummies Paying it Forward.

Mummies Paying it Forward is a charity, who collect new and good condition used items for mothers and children in need - "From those who have a lot to give to those who are in need".

Mary's House special donor

A special Donor

A big thank you to the many people and organisations who donate to Mary's House each year.  We'd like to highlight one such donor.  Annie is a year 6 student at St Philip Neri School. The Parents and Friends at St Philip Neri supported Mary's House through their Christmas party. After hearing about what Mary's House does, Annie decided that instead of presents for Christmas she wanted to receive money which she would then donate to us. As requested, all her family gave her money. You can see Annie here presenting the cheque to Maggy Farago, our executive officer and Richard Harpham, one of our board members.
