Rush House Staff donate items to Families First

25th November 2021

Families First is a Rotherham based group which relies on volunteer and donation support, to fulfil family worker requests of good quality clothes, adult and children’s, baby equipment, bedding, curtains, towels, small household items and toys, to aid those who for whatever financial reason need some support.

To help find new or no longer used, in good condition items, Families First placed a need on the Rotherham Pay it Forward register to allow the need to be shared and pledges of items to be made.

Lisa Rachieru from Rush House personally had some items to donate and used the Rotherham Pay it Forward register to kindly pledge to Families First. Items include toys and clothes. Families First is a cause that Lisa Rachieru is particularly interested to support having worked successfully alongside Families First in the past and said:

“I’m committed to donating more and continuing the relationship with Families First”.

The Rotherham Pay it Forward team brokered this support and the donation was made to a very grateful team at Families First.

It is this time of year that donations are particularly helpful in the run up to Christmas as the Families First team also run Rotherham’s Christmas Toy Appeal ensuring that local children in need receive a gift on Christmas day. All toys donated through Rotherham’s Christmas Toy Appeal are new to provide the children and families with a sense of true Christmas spirit and normality.

If your group is interested in joining Rotherham Pay it Forward it is easy to get involved. Just go to the Voluntary Action Rotherham website https://www.varotherham.org.uk/ and select Rotherham Pay it Forward in the drop down menu to complete a sign up form.
