Thank you and Goodbye to our placement students!

For the past four weeks we’ve had two amazing 3rd year medical students from the University of Sheffield on placement with us.

As part of their extensive course, they are required to complete a four-week placement to see the wider implications of health care in our local community.

They have been absolutely wonderful and flexible They have developed tools to help MIN show evidence of our impact and help us monitor progress. This will give us a greater understanding into the changes MIN is making to people’s lives and the difference we are making in the community. We can also use the information to prove to funders and grant-makers that we make a real impact.

They’ve also had the lovely idea of creating a resource package for mums with lots of handy and helpful links, providing them with even more empowering information and advice.

Thank you for our card and flowers!

They’ve been a great addition to our team of passionate volunteers, and we appreciate how flexible they’ve been, especially considering that they started on in the middle of our moving process. They were very supportive and helped us pack and unpack!

Today we also say goodbye to our student from Tapton School who has been with us from September. She is hoping to study a midwifery course so got in touch to gain experience with Mums in Need.

She volunteered with us once a week and has been an absolute pleasure. Her can-do attitude and sparkly personality have been very welcome here. We’ve been very grateful that she’s been so flexible and has turned her hand to many a task, including being part of our promotional material, writing FAQs for our website, setting up our bric-a-brac sales area, sorting donations and so much more!

We know she’ll do very well in the future and are excited to see her achieve her dreams!
We appreciate all they’ve done for us and hope they’ve enjoyed being here as much as we’ve enjoyed having them. We hope their time here has been informative, useful and enjoyable. We hope they keep in touch and wish them all the best for the future.

Bye bye Block D

We are pleased to announce that we are MOVING!

Mums In Need HQ will move our premises from Block D of Meadowhall Business Park to join Forces Support in Block B/2 on 27th November. We would like to thank Meadowhall Business Park for providing us with the space to develop which has allowed us to double in size. We have since been able to support mums face-to-face and expand our support services and volunteer team. We would not exist without the provision of these offices and we look forward to moving into our new home for the foreseeable future. You can read more about how Meadowhall Business Park support local charities through use of their office spaces here.

We’re hoping to get support services up and running as soon as possible. If you know anyone who needs support, they can contact us via enquiries@mumsinneed.com.

Due to the move there will unfortunately be no fundraiser sale this month, however we’ll announce future fundraising sales via our Facebook site. If you’d like to support us in the meantime, our fundraiser gig is happening on 1st December and we’d love to see you there.

Please note that we will be able to accept again donations once we have moved.

As always, we thank you all for your continued support.
