Beauty brand GOSH donated £15,000 of cosmetics and beauty products to Marie Curie Hospice’s in Hampstead last week.

The international cosmetic brand’s #GOSHmakestheworldprettier project aimed to give back to local communities, as part of its UK supplier Superdrug’s ongoing partnership with Marie Curie.

The products donated will help stock the hospice’s beauty salon where patients are treated to beauty sessions by volunteers.

Marie Curie volunteer Jawaad Ashraf said: “People often tell me that these little treatments really help brighten up their day and bring them some happiness. It’s such a nice treat for the patients to have this brand new collection of products in the hospice.”

Marie Curie Hospice Hampstead manager Jackie Laidlaw said: “We can’t thank GOSH COPENHAGEN enough for this incredibly generous donation.

“It’s those small touches that can make such a difference to the people we care for in the hospice.”

GOSH has donated in total £300,000 to all nine Marie Curie Hospices across the UK and Northern Ireland.
