Foster Hope

Louise Burnie started the Foster Hope Charitable Trust in 2010.   Foster Hope believes that every child in foster care deserves to know that their community cares about them. They demonstrate this through providing children with necessities to ease their way and symbolise support for them and their carers. They make up backpacks to be given to children when they are removed from their homes, which includes a carry all bag, toiletries (toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc) and some items that will show them they are loved (books, soft toys, etc).

Monty’s has been involved as a drop off point for the charity from the start.

If you have any donations for them, feel free to bring them to:
