Our Story

Serving our Superheroes started out as a project to help prevent the cross-contamination of Covid-19, by providing laundry bags to the NHS and other front line care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project evolved as the needs of the community evolved. Providing washbags filled with toiletries to the NHS and staff treat packs. Now, as a registered charity, we have grown and brought the community together to support those in need. Serving Our Superheroes provides washbags (filled with toiletries) to the NHS, the homeless, refugees and to victims of domestic violence. We also provide dementia aids (fiddle/twiddle muffs) in conjunction with the Rotary Club, emotion dolls to schools, baby clothes, hats and blankets and toiletries for babies, children’s clothes and school uniforms and sanitary items. We also provide clothes, sleeping bags, shoes, and snacks to the homeless. We work with many other charities including the London Community Kitchen, Ealing Community Aid and Dress a girl to support those in need.

We help those in crisis, including supporting the Afghani Refugees.

To date (August 2021) we have donated over 51, 039 items worth an estimated value of over £578,970.
