The Bo Pura Foundation 2021

We know how difficult or challenging life can be!  It might be that a relationship breakdown or a bereavement has sent you into a downward spiral that you have found hard to climb out of or it may be that life, in general, hasn’t been kind and you can’t seem to get a foothold to pull yourself up. Having suffered a breakdown, leading to clinical depression, in the 1980s due to a combination of having to become a carer for her mother after a life-changing illness and having her husband walk out on her, Jilly, the founder of Bo Pura, knows all too well how hard life can be and what a struggle it is to carry on sometimes.

It was always Jilly’s aim, after having succeeded in establishing Bo Pura as a leading anti-ageing skincare brand, to set up The Bo Pura Foundation, to help others achieve their dreams by providing a bursary which, each year, will give the recipient a fully paid for educational course to allow them to achieve the first step on the ladder with which to launch their career from.
