There are various activities taking place during the summer holidays – see link below for this date:
At Helping Hands we often get requests from health professionals asking for equipment and clothing for families of multiples who are unable to buy the items themselves.
Currently we have two requests for two families one family have 5 month old triplets and one is a mother to one month old twins in the Lewisham and Greenwich area. The family of the triplets would benefit hugely from a twin or triplet pushchair and clothing suitable for the time of year, the mother to twins would also benefit from a twin pushchair, a buggy board and clothing for her baby twin boys.
If you are able to help by providing anything that you think would be of use to the families and you would be able drop the items at a Sure Start centre located in the Lewisham area please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the item details and your contact number.

**A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY **
On Friday 3rd October, the committee will be hosting a drinks evening which will also include our Annual General Meeting (venue and time to be confirmed and it will include wine!).
Please put this date in your diary and come along – we would love to see as many members there as possible – it is a nice opportunity to have a night out with other twin mums and dads and the chance to meet our committee members and if you wish, provide us with your views and opinions on how we might improve the support and information available to twins club members.
I don’t anticipate the AGM taking too long and it should hopefully give you an insight into how we run twins club.
