IMG_7042I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. A big thank you to all the lovely people who made it to the Kensington Mums Motherhood Exhibition last Friday. The event was a great success! Thanks to all the Mums who took part and to everyone who made it super special. and off course to all of our sponsors. Special post to come out soon with pictures of the event. Watch this space.



Kensington Mums attended the V Delicious and The Allergy Free From Show and Kensington Olympia.  It was a great family day out with lots of stalls with useful information relating to allergies, vegetarian workshops and even a children’s designated area with stories, puzzle and crafts to keep them entertained.



Don’t let fashion go to waste! Kensington Mums has contributed towards H&M Garment Collection in the Kensington store. Every year, tons of textiles end up in landfills. But as much as 95% of these textiles and clothes could be used again. That’s why H&M are now collecting clothes in their stores. Clothes of any brand, in any quality and any condition. So if you’ve got something worn, torn or hopelessly out of style – don’t throw it away or let it pile up in the back of your wardrobe. Bring it to them and help reduce the amount of fashion being wasted. You can also give away any unwanted baby clothes which no longer fit your little ones. Bring your unwanted clothes to any H&M store (Kensington Store accept this). For each bag of clothes you hand in, you will receive a £5 voucher to redeem on your next purchase of £30 or more. Click here for more information.
