Soap-makers sell out at Gloucestershire WI event

The talented soap makers at HMP Eastwood enjoyed a bumper day at the Gloucestershire WI’s AGM last week.

They sold their entire stock of 100 bars of Eastwood Soap before lunch-time at the event held at Cheltenham Town Hall.

Eastwood Soaps produces a range of luxury and novelty glycerine soaps, handmade by the women at HMP Eastwood Park Prison. The women enrol on a four-week craft and retail course, and once they are trained in soap-making they get the chance to make some of the luxury soap, which then goes out for retail sale.

The soaps are sold by three retailers:
•              Berkeley Castle (GL13 9PJ)
•              Leyhill Grounds Coffee Shop (GL12 8BT)
•              Jail House Café, The Verne (DT5 1EQ).
