Behind the scenes in our warehouse

Last week our whole team came together to transform a mixed donation of toiletries and dental products from Colgate, into columns of shippable boxes of toothpaste and shelves of toiletries ready for re-packaging. 

Our task, overseen by Janet (Inventory and Liaison Manager and tough task master) was to fill the cartons with 50 tubes to match the description we have on the catalogue.  However … we were far too busy nattering to count … so be prepared for boxes with extra freebies  … we made sure that every box we packed was filled to the brim! 

At a rough count we picked, sorted and repackaged over 6,000 tubes of toothpaste. 

It will all be worth it when the toothpaste comes on to the catalogue next week and we hear back from you about the care packs you’ve been able to fill, school oral hygiene projects you’ve been able to run and top-ups you’ve made to food parcels! 


Keep an eye out for them here
