Meet the Team

Helen Feeney

My name is Helen Feeney and I‘m the chairperson and founder of Bairnecessities.

My role was creating the organisation with help from Baby Bank Network in Bristol. Now I receive referrals from professionals and gather the items they require, handing over the packages to the professionals for them to deliver to the clients. I also coordinate donations, apply for funding, ensure we meet Trading Standards and Health and Safety guidelines and continue to promote the organisation.

I’m a mum to three little monkeys, a dance teacher and work as a community nursery nurse alongside the Health Visitors. It is through my job that I realised just how many families are struggling locally and so I set up Bairnecessities to try and help.

Rebecca Cassie

I’m Rebecca Cassie, secretary for Baby Bank Bairnecessities.

My role involves, sending out emails and letters to help secure funding, help arrange fundraising events and also taking in and sorting donations for the Fraserburgh area.

I’m a mum to two children, staff nurse and friend to many. In my spare time I like to read, climb the Munros, raise money for Charities and spend quality time with family and friends.

This is our committee which is just a small number of our committed volunteer team who help us support so many families.The team also includes many dedicated volunteers, mostly mums on maternity leave and/or with young children, putting in the hours to help ensure no family goes without.
