We will also be accepting donations of tampons and pads for the local chairty that distributes them to women and girls in need in the borough, so please feel free to bring some along if you are able.

“The idea for ‘We-STAP’(We supply toiletries and menstrual products to Women in Need) was created many years ago, when I worked as a health visitor. I visited a client who lived with her partner and three children and was experiencing domestic abuse. Her partner did not buy her anything and would not give her any money either. I enquired how she managed when she started her menstrual cycle, to which she cried and told me that she only had toilet paper to use as a sanitary product. I was very shocked by this and decided to raise funds to purchase sanitary products for her.”
