Little Village helps families thrive
Published: Tuesday 28th March 17
Little Village, set up with help from the Wandsworth Grant Fund, has helped more than 330 local families.
Little Village was set up by a group of local mums
Demand for the service has more than doubled and it now runs a weekly drop-in playgroup where families can collect the items they need. Items donated and distributed include more than a hundred cots and Moses baskets, 4,500 nappies and more than 80 buggies, plus countless clothes, toys and books.
Grants committee chairman Cllr Melanie Hampton said: “I’m delighted to hear Little Village is going from strength to strength. We supported its grant application because it was a brilliant idea, with real energy behind it.
“I would urge local organisations, groups of friends or neighbours, or anyone with a good idea that could help their local community to consider applying to the Wandsworth Grant Fund.”
