Salad Skills’ warming gesture

December 7th 2018

This year, instead of sending Christmas cards, Salad Skills will be donating money to provide gift bags for the homeless.

The bags – known as KipBags – cost £15 each and contain a sleeping bag, toiletries, socks, hat, plasters and a homeless information pack. These essential items make a real difference to people who don’t have a roof over their heads.

Salad Skills’ Sarah Cripps said: “This is a great way to make better use of the money we’d usually spend on Christmas cards. Here’s wishing everyone a fantastic Christmas from the Salad Gems!”

If you’d like to find out more and donate a KipBag or two yourself, visit the KipBag website.

Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
