Support from Essity for Cafe @ Burn Lane

A major local employer, Essity Prudhoe Mill, is supporting the new Changing Places facility within Cafe @ Burn Lane with donations of toilet tissue and Tork paper hand towels. Essity’s Cath Frost came along to one of the preview days in April to deliver the donated goods. Cath is pictured here with Liz Prudhoe at the facility.

Mill and site manager George Placogiannakis said: “Health and hygiene are essential human needs, and we are delighted to support this important new disabled facility as part of our global Essentials Initiative. The link between hygiene, health and well-being is well-documented, but fighting cultural stereotypes and resource inequalities as well as improving access for all sections of our community remains something we all need to get behind.”
