First Base has appealed for donations of toiletries and underwear.
The day centre is in need of shampoos, shower gels, razors, shaving foam, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and men’s socks and pants.
Claudine Cohen, First Base Day Centre Deputy Manager welcomes all donations but advises people not to bring soaps as they can only be used once.
If you have any toiletries to donate, please call First Base Day Centre on 01273 326844
The brand new shower facilities at First Base are always in high demand and each week we see a steady increase in numbers. This means toiletries get used very quickly and replenishing them can put a strain on our already overstretched resources.
Donations of toiletries and underwear would be greatly appreciated by the rough sleepers that use our service. Having a shower in the morning is vital to our clients as it increases their chances of accommodation and employment as well as raising their sense of worth and self esteem.
