Over the weekend we sat and watched the news in utter disbelief like everyone else and felt so helpless that we couldn't do anything to stop what was unfolding before our eyes.
My boys asked how they could help the children of the Ukraine?
We found a wonderful Ukrainian charity called Voices_of_children, set up back in 2015, which is now providing assistance to children and families effected by the war. I have been in contact with them to ask permission to make a charity soap.
The boys designed a soap loaf themselves using the colours of the Ukrainian Flag and choose a scent similar to a popular Gents Aftershave in honour of the men fighting for their country.
They worked out the percentage volumes of oils and pigment themselves (with a little supervision from me) and also wrote down the formulation.
I am donating the ingredients and packaging for these so 100% of the money taken will be sent over directly to this great charity.
We will be asking for a minimum donation of £3 per slice (you can pay more should you so wish - just select the amount you want to pay from the drop down box)
If you are local to Grimsby and Cleethorpes and want to collect your soap from my Meridian Point Craft Centre shop then select local pick up at the checkout and no postage will be charged.
