Donor Friday – PZ Cussons

For this month’s #DonorFriday, we want to shine a light on the incredible product donations from our longstanding partner PZ Cussons and their commitment to supporting communities by supplying antibacterial hand wash.

Launching the Product Giving Alliance

The last few months have highlighted to all of us what makes up life’s essentials that we so often take for granted. Whether it’s toilet rolls, cleaning products or hand sanitiser, we have been reminded of the value they hold in keeping us safe, clean and well.
