It being the season of harvest and thanksgiving and all those good things, we will be making collections for The Genesis Trust (food) and The Women’s Refuge (toiletries) at our November meeting on Wednesday the 6th.

Bring along toiletries for the Bath Women's Refuge.

Toiletries drive for the Bath Women’s Refuge.

We will be collecting toiletries for the Bath women’s refuge. They would welcome any donations of toiletries for women and for children. Everything is helpful, from absolute basics like toothpaste, through to little luxuries. Keep an eye out for all those 3 for 2 offers that are around at the moment. Free sample toiletries (miniatures or sachets) are also welcome.

The Genesis Trust who run the food bank in Bath have sent us their shopping list, which you can download here:

Food drive for the Bath Food BankAll non-perishable and within date foods are welcome, but the things in yellow are in high demand at the moment. Please drop an extra item or two in your trolley when you’re doing your shopping… in WAITROSE!

Remember that Bath WI is one of this month’s local charities at Waitrose, so all our members are obliged to shop exclusively in Waitrose (which let’s face it, is no hardship really).

When you’ve finished your shopping, remember to swipe a ladylike handful of the little green tiddly winks and drop them in the Bath WI container on your way out.
