The Hygiene Bank Gloucester really needs your support as they get up and running. It was formed from Gloucester based Ansvar Claims team ( part of Ecclesiastical)

So IIC&G thought let's get running (or walking, crawling, cycling) too and are delighted to announce our 2022 virtual 10k fundraiser will be for THB.

The Hygiene Bank has grown from a belief that basic hygiene is not a privilege. It’s not right that feeling clean should be a luxury for anyone in our society, yet many of us are living in poverty.

They would very much appreciate any monetary donations, however big or small, so that they can ring fence some funds and start helping some local community partners. Needs include specific sizes of nappies for baby charities, sanitary products for people affected by the unbelievable real thing that is period poverty and sun cream for street pastors.

Here is how you, IIC&G members, friends, families,anyone in the world can help!

This is a virtual 10k so ANYONE and EVERYONE can get involved throughout April and May SAFELY
