Crisis marks the end of its partnership with Dr.PAWPAW
Crisis and Dr.PAWPAW have celebrated the end of their year-long partnership, marking the occasion with a virtual end of partnership celebration event and a bespoke cheque presentation video, which was shared across Dr.PAWPAW’s social media channels.
Dr.PAWPAW raised vital funds for Crisis over the 12 months through the sale of their products, which will be used to support the delivery of our health and well-being services for people experiencing homelessness. The brand also generously donated products for guests at our Christmas centres, and provided prizes for supporters who have competed in Crisis challenge events such as The Race to End Homelessness. Shampoo, body wash and conditioner have also been available at Crisis’ Skylight centres where members have access to washing facilities.
Richard Lee, Director of Fundraising at Crisis, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to Dr.PAWPAW for their support over the last 12 months. Their generous donations have meant that clients spending Christmas with us had toiletries to use, and the thousands of pounds raised will help to fund our frontline services which are adapting to meet the urgent needs of people leaving temporary accommodation, and those people made newly homeless as a result of coronavirus. We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the team at Dr.PAWPAW for helping us in our mission to end homelessness for good.”
Johnny Paterson, Managing Director of Dr.PAWPAW, said: “Homelessness is something that has always been close to mine and Pauline’s hearts, we cannot imagine not having somewhere to call home. After visiting Crisis’ services, meeting their team and seeing their amazing set up and initiative, we knew we had to support Crisis’’.
Dr.PAWPAW was founded by husband and wife Johnny and Pauline Paterson in 2013 as a natural alternative for steroid prescription creams, when their daughter was diagnosed with eczema. The duo decided to create a multipurpose balm that could be used on lips, skin and hair, and envisioned an affordable range of products that all the family could use.
