Mothers' Union Australia Hervey Bay branch has given away its 5000th gift to a new mother in Hervey Bay Hospital. New mum Jude, with her baby daugher Rose were the lucky recipients.
Members of MU Australia Hervey Bay branch have been giving new mums on the Fraser Coast gifts to help them become more adjusted to parenthood for 15 years. Each mum receives a gift basket full of hand-made items that are useful to new families.
Branch Tresurer Rosslyn Fallon says a typical basket contains hand-made bits, washers, beanies, booties, mittens and small stuffed toys.
