I have just heard from S who tells me the tumble dryer ‘is amazing’ and wants me to pass on her thanks.
Thank you all so much again for your recent help. I saw her new wardrobe in place yesterday and she is so pleased with it!
Mum is overwhelmed by the offer of help.
You are all so amazing – no sooner said than done!
Wow. Its just been delivered to me. you are a star.
Just to say a big thank you for your support with our breakfast club. I gave you a mention to our OFSTED inspector earlier.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! Thank you so much. I am overwhelmed.
The girls are going to love these. This will make such a huge difference. Thank you.
That was the best week I had, like, ever! I never thought I’d do camping but I did. And I loved it.
I can swim now. It is so much fun and Mum says she will come with me in the holiday.
From school uniforms and swimming lessons to Adventure Plus and The Nurture Room. It has been so valuable to know that you are behind us both with funding and encouragement.
Your support is really having an amazing impact for local families.
The cooker has been installed today. I want to say thank you ever so much and I will always remember you when I cook.
Just wanted to let you know that the school uniform has arrived and all fits perfectly. Mum came to see me on Friday afternoon for me to pass on her thanks for everything.
I know it makes such a difference to her to be able to receive this support.
It’s so good for morale for clients when they realise that others might be aware of the challenges they face
Thanks again to you all for supporting my clients. Your help has meant so much to them and I see it reflected in being one less thing to worry about, and in their complex lives that really makes a difference.
Thank you so much for all your help sorting the carpet. We love it, it makes it feel more like home.
The main objective of Thrive North Ox is to provide practical support to children of struggling families in North Oxfordshire who, for whatever reason, have a genuine, urgent need. Usually, this need would be for a specific basic item such as toiletries, a bed to sleep on, basic clothing (that most of us take for granted) or a rug to cover a bare floor following a sudden home move.
Thrive North Ox is in touch with partnership schools’ Parent Support Advisors. As the group becomes more established and funds grow, the aim is to extend the contact to include local nursery school leaders, health visitors, the food bank, women’s refuges, and the children’s centres. The staff in these roles can call on Thrive when they have a specific urgent request – they can request items for the children and Thrive can provide it. Most importantly Thrive will remain invisible to those families it supports, respecting the pride of those that the organisation has been able to help.
The money required to fund this support is generated from local fundraising events.
If you are interested in helping at fundraising events, or learning more about the organisation, Thrive North Ox would love to hear from you – please do get in contact via the contacts page on the website.
There is also a JustGiving fundraising page that can be found here, should you wish to help make that little difference that could just have the greatest impact on a child’s life.
