The Sheffield branch of Lush in Fargate closed its doors yesterday over the COVID-19 outbreak – but is giving away stocks to groups, NHS groups, schools, charities and the vulnerable.

On Facebook, a spokesman wrote: “We have had over 40 requests from different organisations in less than an hour.

“We’re currently working on getting back to everyone who has emailed so far. Thank you everyone!

“As of yesterday we are now closed for the foreseeable future. But that means we have some spare soap that we want to share with you!”

Anyone interested in the offer should email [email protected] with the subject: Soap

The soap will need to be collected in store within the next few days.
