Secret Santa Baby Cafe Fundraiser

Oxford Sling Library decided to do a Christmas fundraiser for Baby Cafe in response to most of their funding being cut in 2016.

Initially we had a Baby Cafe branded money tin out at sling library sessions but found that it hadn’t collected that much. We made the decision to do a secret Santa fundraiser via the sling hires. Usually our slings are £3 to hire for a fortnight (with the usual deposits and T&C’s). The sling library was going to be closed for a month over Christmas so we decided to charge £5 for the month away that included the £2 per hire donation to Baby Cafe. Of course, some hirers needed their Christmas hire to start before the last sling library of the year so we had a staggered start to our collection. In January 2017, we calculated that we had collected £118.50 for Baby Cafe. Well done to all our hirers for hiring in December until January, which meant that our secret Santa donation was so successful! Thank you to everyone involved.
