Generous Doncaster folk have paid for early Christmas presents worth nearly £300 for our patients.
The money was donated by local customers of Tropic Skincare, which produces naturally derived skin and body products that are vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly, with each sale also funding education for children.
The packs – which each contain around £20 worth of Tropic Skincare products – will be given to St John’s patients diagnosed with some form of life limiting illness, to support their wellbeing and provide pampering self-care.
Tropic Ambassador Katie Crisp organised the fundraising amongst her customers before visiting St John’s to hand over the packs to Maureen Harwood, from our fundraising team.
Katie said: “I just want to say a huge heartfelt thankyou to everyone that has donated. I am so proud to be a Tropic Ambassador, even more so at this time of year when we have the opportunity to give back and put a smile on people’s faces who need it the most.”
Maureen added: “This is the second time this year that Tropic Skincare have donated pamper packs for our patients. A big thank you to everyone who donated and made it possible.”
