Emily would like to say the following:

Thank you to all the people who have donated items! I have attached some pictures & I am thoroughly grateful, the charity is too! I have also raised around £135 for the charity!


Hi! My name is Emily

I live in the village at 11A Main Street and am raising awareness of the charity ‘The Y’ as part of competing in Miss Leicestershire 2020.
Instead of raising money, I’m collecting non -perishable food items, sanitary products etc that I can take into the charity.

I will be organising to either collect the donations from people’s houses on the week commencing 16th March and will be leaving a donation box on my doorstep (11A) throughout that week. Deadline for donations is Monday 23rd March.

If anyone wants donations collecting from their house they can text/call me on 07986008370 or email emilyrowlands88@gmail.com to organise a convenient time/date for them.

Items we are looking for are Tins, pasta, rice, breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, sugar, sanitary products, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush, socks and towels.

Shoe boxes can be a perfect way to put a ‘welcome’ box together for a homeless person. A box of toiletries and basics can make all the difference for someone moving in without many belongings. If you can, please fill a shoe box with a selection of items such as: Shampoo and conditioner, Shower gel, Deodorant, Razors, Face flannel, Toothpaste, Tooth brush, Mouthwash, Tea bags, Coffee, Sugar, Pen and pad, Cup, Bowl, Plate, Cutlery, Socks etc.

Every young person deserves a safe place to call home. The Y provides 118 young people with support and accommodation but Emily needs your help! Watch The Y Charity Video for more information.
