On Saturday 16th December people in Loughborough donated hundreds of toiletries to the food bank, PACE.
The collection, help at Unity House and organised by volunteers from the Loughborough Labour Party, received over 20 crates of toiletries in just 2 hours. Items collected included soap, shower gel, shampoo, sanitary products, razors, shaving foam, toilet rolls, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
The donations were delivered to PACE, a community charity based in Baxter Gate, Loughborough that runs a food bank for people in the area finding themselves in need of support.
Food banks rarely have enough essential toiletries, an issue brought to life in the Ken Loach film I, Daniel Blake.This inspired us to find out what we could do to help.
Roy Crumbley of PACE said “We’re thrilled with the outcome of the Loughborough Labour Party’s toiletries collection. This will help PACE continue to support the vulnerable members of our community”.
