Period Poverty

It wasn’t long ago that the words ‘Period Poverty’ started to appear on my social media. It wasn’t Period Poverty in a developing world a thousand miles from my front door but Period Poverty right here in the UK.

I have to say that to begin with I was shocked and doubted what I was reading. Surely not in this century? Surely not in this country? I spent the day contacting the High Schools here on Anglesey and lo and behold it was true. Young women in our school system have been struggling for whatever reason each month. Some are missing school and social events because they are afraid to leave home in case they have an accident.

Schools no longer have the budget to provide Period Products and under 18’s don’t get referred to food banks. One way to ease the situation is to raise funds to purchase Period Products. These are handed over to the schools on the island for distribution.Another is to support organisations like Red Box that are springing up country wide.

Over the past year with the help of a team of volunteers we have been supporting Ysgol Uwchradd Caergybi. They are now full stocked and the intention is to move on to another high school on the island. In order to do this some more fundraising is necessary.

From Monday 18th March to  Saturday 23rd March I will be organising a Pop-Up Charity Shop in Holyhead.

Donations of good quality items would be much appreciated. Clothes, books, CDs, DVDs, toys, Bric-a-Brac, kitchen items etc. etc. will all be gratefully accepted. If you feel that you would be able to help with donations or helping at the shop please get in touch. Many thanks,
