As the school year ends, for those taking external exams thoughts turn to the prom.
However, for many children it's a time of excitement, planning their outfit, the hairstyle and the make-up but for some children it's not that easy.
Wilmslow based Bare Necessities has lent a helping hand, supplying over 50 prom packs to children across Cheshire East and Greater Manchester for whom the expense of prom makes it a huge challenge.
The packs, available with boy or girl essentials, contained a selection of everything they would need in terms of toiletries, make-up and hair products. Many of these have been donated by loyal supporters of Bare Necessities into the charity's collection points.
Some of the packs were given to the Bideford Community Centre in Wythenshawe for their DresSOS initiative which provides dresses and suits to girls and boys for their prom, free of charge - adding a little something extra to Bideford's fantastic offering.
Chair of Bare Necessities, Wendy Hobson, commented, "Whilst the prom packs are complete for this year children in poorer households need toiletries week in, week out, hygiene poverty isn't just for prom. So, if you can, please donate any unused toiletries, make up or make up accessories into our donation boxes.
"Locations can be found on the website. Together we can help ensure all children have the chance to celebrate their achievements and stop hygiene poverty."
