Buddy Bags Project

thumbnail 20210409_154650

In early April President Kathryn Gregory arranged for five members of Wreake Valley Rotary Club to gather in a “socially distanced” outdoor way in order to fill thirty backpacks known as “Buddy Bags”. 

 Each bag contains the essential items a child needs when they enter emergency care. Items such as toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear were provided by club members. The bags also include comfort items such as a reading and colouring books, crayons and a teddy bear. A “Buddy Bag” is something a child can call their own, no matter where they go.

The UK Buddy Bag Foundation was founded by Karen Williams in 2015. It’s mission is ‘to commit 100% of money raised to supply children going into emergency care with essential items”.
