Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Baby Bank

Now that Cumbernauld Old’s support for the Life for African Mothers project has come to a natural conclusion, we thought it would now be appropriate to support new mothers and their children here in Cumbernauld through Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Baby Bank.

From now on, there will be a box in the vestibule of the church and the back of the hall at Balloch for donations. The ‘bank’ would appreciate anything suitable for babies or children up to 7 years of age, e.g.

  • Nappies
  • Baby toiletries
  • Blankets, towels
  • Wipes

Clothing doesn’t have to be new but should be in great condition and freshly laundered. Hand knits would also be appreciated.

You can find out more about the Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Baby Bank on their Facebook page. It is a project of Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care, Scottish Charity SCO47347
