Pre Loved Sale assists North Shore Multiple Birth Club

Pre Loved Sale assists North Shore Multiple Birth Club Fundraising

Auckland, 10 March 2014 – Anyone wanting discounted baby and children’s clothes, shoes, toys, maternity wear and more will find an abundance of bargains at the Pre Loved Sale to be held Sunday 30th March at Meadowood Community House, Unsworth Heights.

Entry is via a gold coin donation which will in turn support the North Shore Multiple Birth Club. The North Shore Multiple Birth Club (NSMBC) is a non-profit club dedicated to the support of families of twins, triplets and multiples on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. NSMBC is run by parent volunteers who offer help, support and advice about dealing with pregnancy, birth, and the first years of multiples and beyond.

NSMBC (via this event) will also be assisting support fundraising for identical twin Toby Dale. Toby is three years old, but he wears pants that are meant for a three month old. Toby suffers from Russell Silver syndrome, a growth disorder that affected how fast he grew before and after birth.

Toby needs to meet with an expert that can help and his parents are fundraising to take Toby to a conference where they’ll be able to meet two of the world’s foremost Russell Silver syndrome specialists.

For further information about NSMBC please refer to www.nsmbc.org.nz
