Thank you

We’re incredibly grateful to the huge number of people who have given us their time, support, advice and contacts to create Caboodle, including:

  • BAND for helping us set up the Caboodle creche, with the right staff, policies and equipment
  • Dahlia Dajani from Entreprenursery for giving us an insight into running pop-ups
  • Faye Dicker of Freelance Mum for bringing us all together and encouraging us to turn a bubbling idea into reality, and the amazing parents at Freelance Mum for their guidance
  • Kate Robinson for marketing advice and printing our first leaflet
  • Will Seelig for producing our Caboodle video short
  • Imogen Smith for her marketing feedback
  • Voscur for running our Kick Start course and giving us guidance on CIC registration
  • Lisa Whiting for taking our profile headshots, working through the rain and trying to get two toddlers and a baby to look at the camera at the same time
  • Laura Williams for getting the first group of freelance parents to meet to try and find a solution, setting up the facebook group that kept us talking, and writing our first press release
  • Windmill Hill City Farm for providing the venue (and cute pigs!)
  • The School of Social Entrepreneurs for giving us a place on the Bristol and West of England Start-Up Programme, supporting Caboodle with guidance, inspiration, and a grant to help us create lasting social change
  • Fran Harkness of Bristol Arts Monster for working with us on our social media strategy.

And of course, a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to our fundraising https://localgiving.org/appeal/Caboodle-pop-ups/
