In August 2018, Lizzy watched the Ken Loach film, ‘I, Daniel Blake’. Moved by the scene where a single mother is caught shoplifting basic toiletries, Lizzy sent a WhatsApp to friends saying she was collecting items to take to her local foodbank. It quickly transpired that the film was reflecting reality – foodbanks and other community support organisations throughout the UK were crying out for toiletries. Thanks to Lizzy’s determination and the power of social media, Lizzy’s single collection of toiletries evolved into a national charity and movement against hygiene poverty. In just over four years, The Hygiene Bank has grown to include over 500 volunteers powering over 170 Local projects. In October 2019 Lizzy was proud to receive The Woman Of The Year, award, Boots sponsored, Wellness Warrior for her work with The Hygiene Bank.
