Baby Bank/Volunteer Co ordinator

In February 2019 Sue Wade founded a non-profit organisation to help and support families ensuring they have the essential items for their family.

As the founder, Sue has responsibility for leading the charity to fulfil its purpose and for reporting to the board of trustees.

Having worked in childcare for the past 30 years, and having recently managed children’s centres, Sue knew the expense of having a baby and the necessity of certain products.

One day inspiration struck.

“What does everyone do with their baby equipment and clothes?”
Some families pass down to others but most of it finds itself in landfill. What a waste when some items were like new!

Sue knew, from her previous role, that it wasn’t easy for professionals to store items and they were consistently asked for them.

So TippyToes was created to be the missing link from those who had items to donate to those in need.

Tippytoes encourages local families to help other local families and encourage a supportive community.

We were very pleased and excited to gain charity status in February 2020, just less than a year from when we started.

Our team is growing and we are able to support more and more families.

TippyToes would not happen without the care, determination, and the same drive from all trustees, volunteers , Families and supporters.
