It has been an amazing journey for The Hygiene Bank from the first WhatsApp message that our founder, Lizzy Hall, sent back in August 2018. Since then we have distributed over 300,000 Kg of hygiene products to our community partners across the UK and Ireland in the 2 years that the charity has been in operation.
We are pleased to publish our first Impact Report, which is full of information about our first year as a registered charity, how we developed our operating models, what we accomplished along with stories about how our work is helping improve people’s lives. It also contains how we are continuing to expand our work as we form strategic partnerships with other anti-poverty organisations to raise awareness about poverty in the UK. A snapshot of highlights from the report can be seen below.
With that, we have continued to develop in 2020 and the two graphs below give an indication of our reach and growth. The Hygiene Bank has supported over 1,100 community partners across the UK and Ireland, which we could not have done without your support.
