New Beginnings

What does New Beginnings do?

We provide, through registered referral agencies, ‘Newborn Bundles’ for the most vulnerable mothers in our communities. These generally consist of a Moses Basket filled with toiletries and clothing for the first six weeks or so of a new baby’s life, gifted to families in need. We operate on donations from the public, and are volunteer led.

The team leaders are: Carrie Pearson, Esther Spence, Peter  Spence.

Giving Time

We are grateful for all help offered, so if you can spare an hour a year, an hour a week or anything in between we would love to have you join us! Our  volunteers are a really friendly  group and always happy to welcome new people. We are also happy to make use of any specific skills you might have to offer. Please speak to Carrie for more information.

Giving Supplies

Everything we give away is donated by our amazingly generous community. If you are in a position to purchase toiletries while shopping, or pass on good quality second hand 0-6 mths baby clothes they will always be put to very good use.

Giving Financially

We are very careful with our funds and have fundraising events, because we do on occasion need to purchase items. Every basket has a brand new  mattress which we purchase from a supplier.


All your generosity enables us to make our Moses Baskets beautiful gifts for mums and babies who are experiencing hard times. Thank you so much!
