Mum been in hospital since Mothers Day awaiting a care home, I have a surplus of incontinence pads at home. Does anyone know how I can dispose of them ie hospital, chemist, charity shop? Don't want to just bin them as they are so expensive, x

I am sure care homes or day centres would love them. I have once seen some advertised on Freecycle as well, unfortunately I was too late to get them!

Incotinence pads

What about your local day care centre? A surplus of incontinence pads might come in handy for anyone who has an 'accident', perhaps?

I'm presuming they are unopened packets. Homes etc won't take opened packets.

Yes, ours got a donation from someone, some of which they are using for OH which means I don't have to send in that many myself.
