Welcome Bags are back on the agenda

There are times in some women’s’ lives when circumstances mean they have to leave their home suddenly, so suddenly that they don’t have time to collect even the most basic items of personal hygiene. SI Rossendale members voted unanimously at this week’s meeting to resume their collection of toiletry items to make Welcome Bags to donate to organisations who support women in these situations. The group will collect small items such as bars of soap, tubes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, shower gel etc and make up small individual packs to be given by these organisations to women in need.

Do you have unwanted gifts or toiletries that you could donate for us to use in these Welcome Bags? Could you buy an additional tube of toothpaste or a bar of soap when you do your weekly shop and donate it to us? If you can help in anyway with this initiative please contact us.
