“We’ve had some lovely people donating since we made the appeal, but cots are like gold dust,” she said.

“Cots and prams are probably the most expensive things parents have to buy, so it’s a popular item for us to be asking for.”

Donations can be dropped at the baby bank’s base in Bramley most weekdays, but donors are asked to get in touch to make arrangements.

The group also has an Amazon wishlist for anyone who would like to buy brand new items for delivery to the baby bank and a GoFundMe page.

Meanwhile, the search is continuing for new low-cost premises in Leeds which would allow it to expand its services.

Anyone with a potential site to offer is asked to email [email protected] or send a message via the baby bank’s Facebook page.
