Ronnie, Sarah and I are running the Exeter Half Marathon on Sunday and we are fundraising for The Hygiene Bank. I have recently set up a project for The Hygiene Bank in Edinburgh and we are looking for funds in order to get the project up and running and help to expand it.
Galvanised by the belief that everyone deserves to feel clean, The Hygiene Bank is a registered grassroots charity grounded in community. We collect and re-distribute donated toiletries, beauty and personal care items to local charities, schools and social enterprises. These in turn are given free to their beneficiaries. Our passion stems from a sense of injustice: it's not right that anyone should face hygiene poverty in modern Britain.
The money raised will help to fund marketing material to support and expand our project and buy donations of toiletries to give to people in need. Any donations would be very gratefully received and will make a huge difference - thank you!
