GOSH COPENHAGEN has donated £300,000 worth of products to Marie Curie Hospices across the country as part of its initiative to give back to local communities.
The Danish-based company’s #GOSHmakestheworldprettier project, included donating nail varnishes and face creams to help stock the hospice’s beauty salons where patients are treated to sessions by volunteers. While GOSH COPENHAGEN shampoos, conditioners and body washes will be used in the patient’s rooms.
Exclusively stocked in Superdrug stores, Marie Curie is the retailers charity of the year. To date, GOSH has donated a selection of products worth £300,000 to all nine Marie Curie Hospices across the UK and Northern Ireland.
Marie Curie hospices provide care and support for people living with a terminal illness, and their families. The hospice also offers the patient, and their families and carers, complementary therapies, which can include aromatherapy, a manicure or a massage.
Annette Roesbjerg, Marketing & Communications Manager at GOSH COPENHAGEN, said: "As an organisation we are honoured to be able to work and donate beauty products to Marie Curie Hospices and see all the amazing care and support they offer for people and their families living with a terminal illness. The donation is part of our ongoing commitment to give back to local communities. We are humbled to have been able to play a part in this and a make a small difference."
Jackie Laidlaw, Marie Curie Hospice Hampstead manager, added: “We can’t thank GOSH COPENHAGEN enough for this incredibly generous donation. Being able to gift patients and their families with these special products is such a treat – it’s those small touches that can make such a difference to the people we care for in the hospice.”
