Winter Product donation appeal

Donate products today

Calling all retailers and manufacturers:

As the days shorten and the nights draw in thousands of charities around the country are already facing an increase in demand from people in crisis, struggling with loneliness, isolation and homelessness at a particularly challenging time of year.

For a community centre, a woman’s refuge or a homeless shelter, being able to provide quality everyday essentials such as soap, shampoo, warm clothes and blankets to those in need isn’t just about relieving hardship. It’s also a way of building self-esteem and connecting with people who are often isolated and hard to reach. It could be the first step in getting them back on their feet and improving their living conditions durably.

Today we are making an appeal to retailers and manufacturers to donate essential stock for local charities in time for the winter months.

So that no one goes without the life’s essentials this winter.

Can you help? Here are products our charities urgently need

Bathroom:
soap, shower gel, shampoo, hand wash, toothbrushes, towels, toilet paper, skincare, etc.

Household:
laundry products, fabric conditioner, surface/floor/toilet cleaner, cleaning wipes, kitchen roll, etc.

Bedding:
single duvet covers, duvets, bed throws, sleeping bags, etc.

Kitchen:
kitchen roll, kettles, toasters, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, coffee makers, etc.
