Operations Director Howard Wardle said the health profile of Eastbourne shows that around 20 percent of children live in poverty.
He said: "Having a family and raising children is expensive, and we continue to see a rise in the number of families using our services; struggling to meet the basic needs of family life, from food to clothing to children’s essentials.
"We believe every child has a right to start life with their needs met; that no child should go without."Then start educating their parents as to their responsibility for this.
The project is being led by Anna Morse, Sarah French and Roisin Murphy, who will be hosting events across the town to promote the project and raise funds to be able to buy new mattresses and essentials. The project is not funded and relies solely on donations.That's now. Want to bet that in time, it'll be a registered charity, and be in line for local authority funding?
