What We Collect

Please note – due to health regulations, all products MUST be new. We can regretfully not accept any open or partly used items. Therefore, products should be full size, unopened, new (ie purchased recently specifically to donate) and in date. We make our packs as gifts to the recipients so only give us what you would be happy to receive.  We dislike having to dispose of product that arrives used or has clearly been purchased some time prior to donation, so please take note of our guidelines.
