“Our mission is straightforward: to provide essential supplies to people who can’t afford them, via partner charities across the UK. Beauty Banks isn’t a physical “bank” as such; instead we supply local organisations who may not have our contacts.”
Beauty Banks is a non-profit organisation set up by the brilliant Sali Hughes (beauty columnist & writer) and Jo Jones (a PR & beauty director). They focus on collecting basic toiletries and cosmetic products for people living in serious poverty who cannot afford the items we take for granted on a daily basis – things like toothpaste, shampoo and deodorant.
Here’s where you can help………. If you have unwanted and unused beauty gifts, toiletries or general hygiene products then please do get in touch and donate! If you don’t have anything spare, as an alternative to monetary donations, people have been adding items to their weekly shop to help those in need. All donations received will be delivered to a charity within Hampshire, supporting the local communities and will be gratefully received.
Beauty Banks accept sanitary products, disposable razors, shampoo, shaving foam, shower gel, combs, hair bands, face wipes, hand gel, sunscreen, baby lotion, soap, face wash, spot cream, deodorant, moisturiser, Band-Aids, conditioner, lacquer, lotion, lipstick, gift sets and anything in an unused hygienic condition.
goPhysio are delighted to be part of this amazing initiative and have become a local ‘beauty spot’. We are collecting your donations at our clinic – 11 Bournemouth Rd, Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh SO53 3DA. Deliveries can be made to us directly during our opening hours.
Your help is invaluable so THANK YOU!
You can follow the organisation direct on social media – @thebeautybanks or contact Jessica Eades who is dealing with all Hampshire donations and logistics.
