A mother from Wymondham has this week launched a baby bank to help families get the clothes and equipment they need to take care of their infants.
Vicky Huckle started Baby Bank Norfolk – the first group of its kind in the county – so that parents could donate their unwanted clothes, books and bedding to others in need.
Mrs Huckle said she first had the idea for the baby bank six months ago.
She said: 'It's really rewarding to know that we've finally got there and that a random idea I had has come to something worthwhile.'
Families will be referred to the service by doctors and other healthcare workers. Mrs Huckle said donations were still being sought, and there was a particularly high demand for toys, books, clothes for babies up to 18 months old, and bedding.
