Event description

Description

“The idea for We-Stap (We Supply Toiletries and Products to women in need in Croydon) was created many years ago, when I worked as a Health Visitor in Croydon. I visited a client who lived with her partner & was experiencing domestic abuse. Her partner didn't buy her anything and wouldn't give her any money either. I enquired how she manged when she had her period. She started crying & told me that she had to use toilet paper. I was very shocked by this and decided to raise funds to purchase menstrual products for her.”

Jackie Morrison (We-Stap Founder)


Come & celebrate our first year.

Hear how we are supporting girls & women.

Did you know period poverty affects 1 in 10 girls aged 14-21 in the UK who struggle to buy menstrual products?

Let's talk about periods & menstrual cups.

Find out how you can get involved by volunteering, collecting items, promoting what we do, sponsorships, making referrals and our future plans.

Donations of menstrual towels/tampons, deodorants, shower gels, toothbrushes & toothpastes will be collected on the day and cash donations.

Snacks will be provided; drinks on sale from the bar.
