Pura is donating nappies to Baby Basics UK

Read why Pura is donating nappies to Baby Basics UK here.

“Pura has joined forces with Green Bottoms and childcare brand Childbase to support Baby Basics, a Sheffield-based children’s charity for struggling families across the UK.

The partnership commenced in April 2024, with each party pledging to donate 1% of the total number of nappies ordered from Pura.

An initial donation of 7206 nappies (300 cases) was made to Baby Basics on Thursday 27 June, and the partnership anticipates donating a generous total of 40,000 nappies in the coming year.

We caught up with Cat Ross, Baby Basics, CEO, to find out more about this worthy charity.”

What an honour!

Our CEO, Cat Ross, has been invited by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority to be part of a team of 8 taking part in the Bloomberg/Harvard City Leadership Initiative – focusing on health inequalities in the early years.

This includes an intensive week of teaching, researching & planning in NYC (All cost covered by Bloomberg Philanthropies). We are excited to be working with other key leaders in South Yorkshire from NHS, LA’s & Sheffield Hallam University.

Cat’s hope is that not only will we see plans to improve lives for 0-5yr olds in South Yorkshire but the implementation can be replicated across other areas of the UK.
