Weʼve raised £165 to help put Red Boxes in local schools to combat period poverty in the Leeds area

The Red Box Project quietly ensures that no young woman misses school because she has her period.
Working as a nationwide community of women, The Red Box Project seeks to provide free sanitary items for the young women in our local schools.
The Red Box Project Leeds is a simple but effective community based initiative to provide young women who lack easy access to sanitary items with as many as they need to get them through their period.
Our schools have a limited supply of sanitary towels for emergencies; which is why this project has been designed to provide a reliable supply month after month.
The Red Box will kept at school with the Nurse, at reception or with an appropriate member of staff. Paper bags are included for discretion. When the stocks run low, the school let us know and we top it back up.
The project is already up and running very successfully all over the country and we need funds to get it up and running here in Leeds.
Donations here will cover the costs of red boxes, bags, posters and sanitary products.
Once up and running the scheme relies on the regular support of the local community donating sanitary products at the local drop off points.
It's a simple, effective and affordable way for the community to work together to solve a simple problem and ensure no young woman misses out on her education.
We will of course keep you updated on all the progress.

I was born in Leeds but grew up in London, went back to Leeds for University and lived there a few years. Now 75 I’m horrified to read that schoolgirls can’t afford tampons or pads.
