Lions’ ‘Toiletries 4 Patients’ appeal

FROME Lions Club has launched an appeal to support patients at Frome Community Hospital, with initial support from the club’s funds and donations from local businesses.

About the appeal Lion Mike Geake said, “There can be many reasons why someone may be short on basic toiletries whilst in hospital, especially given the current restrictions on social visits & travel.

“The club are looking for donations of small size toiletries – such as toothpaste, hand gel, soap, shaving foam or Fixadent and toothbrushes and razors. There are now ‘Toiletries 4 Patients’ drop-bins at Frome Hospital and at Lloyds Pharmacy @ Sainsbury’s. 

“So, when you shop please buy a little extra – or raid your cupboards – and ‘drop it in the bin’! 

“Frome Lions will then work with Frome Community Hospital to ensure your donations go to patients in need and potentially to other local groups and individuals too. Thank you!”

For more information or to offer your donation, please email Lion Allison Rumming at:
