1st place: Comfort U Bags (39.4% of votes)

Comfort U Bags (CUBs) support children going into foster care for the first time.

‘The original idea for Comfort U Bags came from one of our founders Siân who was an ex-foster carer for Bristol City Council. Her vision is to provide a proper bag, filled with comfort and essential items, to these brave children in foster care on their journey to find their forever home.

Over the years, a mixture of fundraising and ‘adopt a CUB’ initiatives have been held supporting children who go into care service in the Wiltshire and Swindon areas. CuBs became a registered charity in 2022 and continues to help children in Wiltshire and Swindon.'
