Sponsor Bob the Builder in this year's Micklegate Soap Box Challenge!

Bob the Builder will be bumping his way down Micklegate, York, on Monday 27 August – driven by Kevin Greenhill, risking life and limb to raise money for Home-Start York. See the Micklegate Run website for more details. Our cart will have 2 runs, at approximately 10.30am and 1.30pm 🙂


Everyone needs a bit of help sometimes!

Sometimes being a parent can be difficult – parents can feel exhausted and overwhelmed by everyday family life and additional stresses such as post-natal depression, illness, disability, separation, isolation or multiple births can make family life even more difficult. If there are no close family members or friends to turn to for help and encouragement it can be even tougher. We are a charity that helps families with young children. Our friendly and caring volunteers are all parents themselves and therefore understand the joys, frustrations and challenges of bringing up children.
