Toiletry Bank deliver prom packs and Father’s Day gifts to local children

Wilmslow Based Bare Necessities Toiletry Bank gave out over 170 toiletry packs to schools and youth groups to help children celebrate their fathers and their own achievements.

Prom should be a time of celebration but for some children it's another challenge being be able to afford to go. Bare Necessities lent them a helping hand by providing boy or girl essential packs containing a selection of what they would need in terms of toiletries, make-up and hair products.

Many of these were donated at the charity's collection points by loyal supporters of the charity, with other items coming from a local corporate supporter and beauty supplier.
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. The Bare Necessities packs added a little something extra to Bideford's amazing offering.

Chair of Bare Necessities, Wendy Hobson, commented, "Hygiene poverty can take away so much from both adults and children and it's important that kids can be made to feel special themselves or make their Dad feel special on his day. None of these packs could have been made up without public contributions, so thank you."

"Whilst the prom and Father's Day packs are complete for this year children in poorer households need toiletries week in, week out. 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.
