Andrex®, the UK’s leading toilet tissue manufacturer, donated 1 million toilet rolls to In Kind Direct in April 2020
Andrex® worked in partnership with In Kind Direct to identify and distribute its product donation across thousands of UK charity partners, such as Age UK and food banks, supporting the most vulnerable within communities up and down the country.
#ShareASquare was designed to celebrate and support acts of generosity. Andrex® asked consumers to share their acts of kindness on social media such as: safely sharing products when you have more than enough, calling an elderly neighbour for a daily chat or demonstrating support for key workers, using the campaign hashtag. In return, Andrex® donated £1, up to £100,000, for each use of the hashtag between April 6 through June 1 2020.
Impact of the donation
1,239 charities benefited from the Andrex donation between April 23 and June 14. Here is what some of them have said.
Home Start Kettering
Home Start Kettering is a family welfare charity based in the East Midlands. They help families with young children cope with everything that life throws at them.
