For small charities, every penny counts

First Days receive no financial support from local government and relies solely on our own fundraising and community donations. We need cash donations to provide families living in poverty with all the things we can’t source for them and to run our service.


These include baby essentials such as nappies, wipes and toiletries, mattresses and bedding sets.

See how your donations can help: 

If you donate £5 - we can provide a waterproof mattress protector

If you donate £10 - we can provide a family with nappies for 2 weeks

If you donate £20 - we can provide a new bedding set

If you donate £30 - we can supply a newborn baby box and toiletries

If you donate £40 - we can buy a toddler car seat

If you donate £50 - we can buy a new single mattress for a toddler

Each referral costs approximately £60 to sort, process and get to families. We keep our costs as low as possible, but we do need financial support to keep our service going.




Helping us raise money doesn't have to be boring.


We have put together a Fundraising Pack to help you with ideas of how you can help us raise much needed funds. 

The Pack contains information on anything from how to hold a Bake Sale to signing up and getting sponsored to run Reading Half Marathon.
