Project Shoebox is a charity, collecting unwanted toiletries and women’s sanitary products, in an effort to support vulnerable women in refuges across the country.

Last year, Project Shoebox made nearly 2000 boxes and got them to refuges across the UK, using wits, brains, kindness and volunteers. Entirely voluntary, entirely self-organised and growing every year.

Contribute to the project this year, by handing over items such as: 

  • Shampoo
  • Moisturiser
  • Sanitary towels
  • Tampons
  • Toothpaste
  • Brushes

 Having a baby is often a real trigger point for domestic abuse to get worse, so babies are often in need within refuges. Any of the following make great baby boxes:

  • Baby shampoo
  • Baby Lotion 
  • Baby Oil
  • Nappy cream 
  • Cotton Wool
  • Wipes
  • Nappy Bags
  • Clean, unused dummies
  • Anything useful for a new mum : nipple cream, nursing pads etc

All of the above, will go a little way towards restoring the self-esteem of women who’ve experienced domestic violence. Used and nearly used products are fine, just ask yourself, ‘would I feel comfortable giving this to a friend?’ If the answer is yes, then Project Shoebox would be grateful for a shoebox containing those unwanted products.


If you’d like to donate to the cause, and you live in the area, there is a drop off point in Ashtead or if that’s too far - simply visit this link to find your nearest donation point – there’s a handy little map! 


Hurry though - Donations end on the 4th December at the Ashtead Drop Off.
