Donations of toiletries needed for those in refuges and shelters this Christmas

Unwanted toiletries needed for those in refuges and shelters this Christmas

West Norfolk marketing and web design agency, Steele Media, will be sending gift boxes of toiletries to women in local refuges and homeless people at the Purfleet Trust this Christmas and is asking for donations of products.


Donations of shower gel, soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorants, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body lotion, hair brushes, combs and sanitary products are needed and will be packed into shoeboxes to be distributed to those that need them at Christmas.

The project is part of a charity initiative called Project Shoebox and Steele Media will be acting as the collection point in West Norfolk.

Helen Jackson, of Steele Media, said: “For the past two years I have co-ordinated collections for Project Shoebox from home but last year I received so many generous donations that I ran out of room in my house! This year Steele Media have offered to act as a collection point, meaning we can accept more donations and reach more people who need them.

“We’re asking people to search their cupboards for unwanted and unopened items of toiletries, or to pick up an extra toothbrush or shower gel with their shopping to donate to this fantastic cause.”

As well as essential toiletry items, donations of luxuries such as perfume and make-up are also welcome. All donations will be packed into shoe boxes, gift wrapped and sent to women in refuges and homeless people around West Norfolk.

Donations can be taken to Steele Media’s offices at Unit 8, Hamlin Way, King's Lynn, PE30 4NG.
