Wilder Coe gets moving to help tackle hygiene poverty

As the UK reopens this spring, Wilder Coe is shaking off our lockdown blues and getting out into the big, wide world to raise money for charity.

In April, some of our team have challenged themselves to move 100 miles each throughout the month for charity.  Whether we walk, run or cycle, our goal is to travel 2,021 miles and fundraise at least £500 for The Hygiene Bank.

Basic hygiene is not a privilege. Everyone in the UK should have access to essential hygiene products. Manjit Takhar, a senior accountant in our Stevenage office, regularly volunteers with The Hygiene Bank.

“My volunteering for The Hygiene Bank started last year amid the pandemic when a group of my friends were involved in a similar project in the Midlands, and it inspired me to do something closer to home. I’m amazed by the generosity of our local community, which donated bundles of hygiene products. We were able to pass them onto homeless shelters, food banks and youth trusts, who, in turn, are so grateful. We can make such a big difference to people by providing simple sanitation items that we often take for granted.”

The Hygiene Bank provides personal care items, sanitation and cleaning products to not-for-profit organisations to help members, vulnerable adults and children. Their hard work doesn’t just benefit one organisation but multiple grassroots initiatives across the UK that tackle a wide range of issues.
