Supporting local families in times of crisis
At Bundles of Joy, we make a positive difference to local families by supplying essential items for babies and children at a time when they need them most.

Bundles of Joy to Cease Operating
It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce that Bundles of Joy will cease operating by the end of March 2022.
The growing demand for support year on year since our inception in 2016 has put the charity under extreme pressure and as a result, it is no longer sustainable.
As a small, independent charity that is run by volunteers and is solely funded by donations from the general public, local businesses and charitable grants, Bundles of Joy has been plugging a gap in services to families in crisis in Hull and the East Riding for the last five years.
We are aware that because other crisis intervention support is difficult to access, Bundles of Joy has become the first port of call for health care professionals and agencies who work with families in crisis in this area, which has put a significant strain on the charity and the wellbeing of the team who deliver the service. Referrals for support during the pandemic were double on the previous year and with this upward trend continuing, we simply do not have the resources to maintain the level of service that is needed.
This was a very difficult and painful decision for everyone involved, but we are also extremely proud of what we have achieved in the last five years. We have helped over 3500 families by giving them immediate, practical, short-term assistance during times of extreme hardship, and have been instrumental in harnessing the strength of the local community to support others less fortunate than ourselves.
We are very grateful to all those who have supported us, and would like to thank everyone for their kindness, generosity and community spirit over the last five years – everyone who has donated to the charity, everyone who has given us their time and professional skills, everyone who has raised funds, our team of amazing volunteers and trustees.
