Free basic toiletries to be made available to people in areas across Lothian experiencing social deprivation
Barbara Haig, senior social impact team at Social Bite, said: “We were delighted Isabel would consider Social Bite for this initiative. This contribution helps our rough sleeping and homeless group who might not otherwise be in a position to purchase these essential items. Isabel also dedicated her time proactively to volunteer which was a very kind gesture.
“The impact, however small or large, is something Social Bite is proud to highlight. We are grateful for the dignified actions Isabel showed born from a need to ‘give back’. Through the kind actions Isabel has shown we hope this can inspire others to be more cause driven.”
How can you get involved?
The campaign is asking for donations of the following:
- Shower gel, soap
- Shaving foam
- Toothpaste and toothbrushes
These can be donated at the iPoint receptions at any of Edinburgh Napier’s campuses – Merchiston, Craiglockhart and Sighthill - or can be organised direct with Isabel at firstname.lastname@example.org
Companies and local businesses can also request their own donation box for use or discuss sponsoring a box in one area for a specific period.
Personal Design Studio – a hairdresser in Mid Calder - is among the first businesses to pledge support in taking its own donation box for the campaign.
