Skin and haircare specialist Kiehl’s is holding fundraising shopping event for Terrence Higgins Trust in its Covent Garden store on World AIDS Day, December 1. From 10.30am-8pm the store in Monmouth Street will be donating 100 per cent of the net profits to Terrence Higgins Trust (THT).
Between 6 and 8pm Terrence Higgins Trust celebrity supporters including Joely Richardson, Saffron Burrows, Erin O’Connor, Jayne Middlemiss, Gail Porter, Colin & Justin, Penny Smith, Kate Garraway, Adele Silva and Emmerdale’s Matthew Bose are expected to attend the event. The X-Factor’s Brenda Edwards will be singing a couple of songs in store.
The event is part of a wider ‘Shop to Stop AIDS’ campaign and fundraising will be going on in 13 countries and 41 stores worldwide. Kiehl’s has supported HIV organisations for some time and in the past has donated the proceeds of a Lip balm to THT. Its Grapefruit Hand & Body Cleanser is currently raising money for the charity.
Debbie Holmes, Director of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust said “Kiehl’s is a fantastic supporter of ours and we’re delighted that they’ve decided to hold this event for us. We hope that our London based supporters will try and make it to the store to do some of their Christmas shopping. It’s a really easy way to support us on World AIDS Day.”
