Punchline Business and Community Champion: Shop's contents given to NHS

Beauty company SLG has donated the entire contents of its staff shop to provide a touch of pampering for NHS workers.

Staff boxed up the contents of the shop at its office in Cheltenham's Brewery Quarter, as well as back room stock.

And the donation, which came from an idea by director Sue Davies after an approach from Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust head of communications Kate Nelmes, has earned SLG the title of a Punchline Business and Community Champion.

It was felt that by donating all the staff shop products it would be a donation from all SLG staff rather than just its owners.

Company founder and chief creative officer Miles Dunkley said: "The hope is that the products that we have donated might provide a momentary and incredibly well-earned self-indulgent distraction from the challenges that the staff will be facing day in and day out.

"It's a small gesture really in the scheme of things but it has been a pleasure to help in this way"

The boxes are full of SLG products including COLAB Dry Shampoo, Johnny's Chop Shop Hair Styling, Amie Naturally Kind Skincare, Superdry Sport Performance Grooming, LMX by Little Mix Beauty and Laura Ashley Beauty.

SLG is a design driven beauty company with a portfolio of beauty and male grooming brands.

An initiative back by the Gloucestershire local enterprise partnership GFirst LEP and the Growth Hub, which runs the county's network of business support centres, Punchline's Business and Community Champions recognise the efforts of businesses and individuals to help others.
