The Fife Free Press is backing a simple, but powerful, new campaign which will make a huge difference to the self-esteem and dignity of many.
Cara Forrester, who edits the online Queendom of Fife magazine, has become Fife’s Beauty Banker.
And together we are urging all Fifers to donate hygiene products to people in poverty.
Beauty Banks is a national charity which helps at a very local level.
It is established in Edinburgh and Glasgow and now, with Cara at the helm, it is coming to Fife in time for Christmas.
Its message is simple – hygiene isn’t a luxury, it is a basic human right.
With your help we can help many Fifers in poverty between now and Christmas.
All you have to do is pop an extra packet of toothpaste, a hair product, deodorant into your weekly shop, and then drop them off.
Your kindness will directly be felt by someone living locally.
Here is how what we are looking for – and where you can rop off your donations.
WHAT CAN I DONATE?
Any unused toiletries including shampoo, body wash, toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant, disposable razors,
travel sized shampoo and body wash, sanitary pads, men’s grooming products, face wash and baby products – nappies, baby shampoo, body wash
Anything else is a welcome bonus!
