Home Starter Boxes
"This is a great project - it should be rolled out across the whole country."
Steve Meadwell, Exaireo
"I commend this initiative."
Lord Willy Bach
Home Starter Boxes are given free - via local charities - to people who are being rehoused from difficult circumstances. The boxes provide crockery, cutlery, pans, an electric kettle, cleaning kit, etc to get people started in their new home.
They are a joint initiative by Loughborough Beacon Rotary Club, Loughborough Rotary Club, and the Inner Wheel Club of Loughborough.
If you are a local charity that rehouses people...
...then please get in touch (see below). We can then see if we are able to help you.
If you are a potential supporter...
...we'd love to hear from you (see below). We are always looking for community-minded people and organisations who can help us fill our boxes.
If you'd like to run your own scheme...
...then we're very happy to share our experience with you.
TESCO Bags of Help - during May and June please pick up your token at the TESCO checkout and vote for our project. This could earn us £4000!
