Harborough Hygiene Bank was set up in late June this year, to help ameliorate the effects of hygiene poverty in Harborough district. With the end of the Furlough scheme, it is expected that more people will find themselves in the situation where they are making very difficult choices between paying their housing costs, their utility bills, feeding themselves and their family, and keeping themselves clean.
What we do
We are a group of volunteers who collect donations from the public, store and sort them, then distribute to partner organisations what they need for the people they are in contact with. We work closely with these partner organisations so we can deliver exactly what they need.
The following places have Donation Boxes where people can place their donations.
- The Co-op, the Commons, Market Harborough
- Boots the chemists, St. Mary’s Place, Market Harborough
- Sainsburys, Market Harborough
- The Co-op, high Street, Kibworth
- The Manor, Tur Langton
