Hemel residents have been generously donating to a local charity which is supplying NHS workers with as much hand cream as possible.
Healing Hands, run by a group of local women, have set up three drop off points across the town where residents can donate hand cream, other essential items and some non-essential, spirit-lifting things too – like knitted love-hearts or T-shirts.
They’ve also created a fundraising page for people who are self-isolating, but still wish to contribute to the cause.
The women who run the charity use that fund, which currently sits at £1,500, to buy hand cream and drop it off with the other donated goods.
On their Facebook page, the charity say: “Our aim is to provide drop boxes where the general public can drop off new, unused face or hand creams for the NHS staff which we can then take to the local hospitals. It is such a simple idea but we really believe it’s a small way of saying thanks to all those amazing NHS angels.”
The charity’s drop off points are: 30A Lindlings (HP1 2HB), 11 Mulready Walk (HP3 9FS) and Sainsbury’s Apsley, in store.
