The Princess of Wales, Catherine, was undertaking a previously unannounced engagement today and visited The Baby Bank in Windsor which supports the families in the surrounding areas of Windsor, Maidenhead, Slough, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and a few more. The Princess of Wales learned about the crucial work Charity is carrying out to support the families.
You might remember in 2020 The Princess of Wales joined hands with Baby Bank and British brands in a bid to boost support for vulnerable families. She brought together nineteen British brands and retailers to donate over 10,000 new items to more than 40 baby banks nationwide.
This visit came ahead of next week’s Coronation of King Charles III and is part of William and Catherine’s initiative to focus on the local organisations near their Windsor Home, Adelaide Cottage where they moved in 2022.
The Baby Bank in Windsor was founded by two mothers in 2015 to support fellow young mothers and families who are struggling financially. The Charity provides families with many routine-used products like newborn starter kits, school uniforms, nappies, buggies and beds. The charity is being supported by locals i.e. public, retailers and suppliers who donate products and food to the organisation. The Royal visit to such organisations put them on the radar and can help in increasing their visibility.
The Baby Bank is being promoted through word of mouth and the network of 150 partners i.e. Helping Hands, Social Services, Local schools, Food Banks and Refugee organisations that refer people in need to the Baby Bank for support. Since its establishment, the charity has supported more than 21500 families. During her visit to the Baby Bank, The Princess of Wales sorted out the donated products with the volunteers and heard the stories of how the volunteer’s efforts are making the charity provide better services to families in need.
Catherine also met with the health visitors who provide health and medical support to the local families via the charity. The young children are the primary focus of The Princess of Wales’s public profile. Her life-long project ‘Early Years Intervention’ is striving to put the importance of the first five years of a child’s life on par with other crucial issues like the Environment.
