Boots in High Road, Beeston now has a big container near the front of the store for people to donate unwanted, unused hygiene items, including toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo and conditioners, shower gels, razors, shaving foam, deodorant, hair brushes and hair ties, nit combs and shampoo, sanitary products, nappies, baby wipes and toilet rolls.

Donated products are passed to the Hygiene Bank for distribution to a network of community organisations, charities and schools, who support people pulled into poverty.
