MASH in need of Christmas Gift Bags

Could you put together a Charity Christmas Gift Bag this year?

As you know MASH is a local Manchester charity that helps women trapped in street sex work (prostitution) to empower themselves & build new lives. Each year we help hundreds of women trapped in poverty and addiction, suffering from violence, with mental health issues, anxious about debts or worried about where they are going to sleep that night.

Christmas can be a very isolating time; some of the women we help are estranged from their families and can feel very alone. We try to make Christmas special by giving everyone a Christmas Gift Bag containing treats and practical items.

We are looking for kind supporters to donate a Christmas Gift Bag or Box containing these six new items:

a pair of gloves

a pair of socks

a small box of chocolates

a deodorant/body spray

an umbrella

and an item of make-up.

We would appreciate it you stick to the items on the list please. Please do not wrap any items or pop in any extra items as it is important that all the women receive similar gifts. Thanks. 

Some of the women like to send anonymous thank you cards.

If you pop your name & address in the bag staff will ensure you receive one of these lovely thank you cards.

(Please note your name and address will be removed from the bag by staff before it is distributed and your contact details are protected by data protection laws).

Please pop the bags to the MASH Drop-In Centre. 

If you are and company interested in collecting multiple bags please let us know and we can arrange to collect. 

You can drop Janelle a line at or call on the number below to arrange to drop-off your Christmas Gifts.

Thank you.
