Supporting families in crisis

Daisy and Hen, Tanunda, has become an official drop off point for The Nappy Collective, that will be running from May 6 – 20.

Ms Gina Britton, owner of Daisy and Hen, will be collecting nappy donations for the cause which will be re-distributed to women, families and children in crisis.

Gina said, “I have a 16-month old son, I couldn’t imagine what I would do without nappies. It’s something so basic and necessary.

“It’s a national drive and quite well known. I have made donations previously, it’s a nice way to give back.

“I am thrilled to be involved in such a wonderful cause. I feel passionate about doing my part to help women, children and families in need and I’m so proud to offer an avenue for the community to become involved too.”

Gina explained that most of the donations go towards women in shelters who may have escaped from domestic violence and packing nappies was the last thing on their mind.

The Nappy Collective will re-distribute the nappies collected from Daisy and Hen to over 130 organisations around Australia that support mothers fleeing family violence and families struggling with homelessness, mental illness, drug abuse, and extreme financial hardship.
