Sadly, in the UK, Period Poverty is on the rise. An estimated 137,000 young women and girls are missing school each year because they do not have the products they need. They are either embarrassed, or lack enough money, to buy sufficient sanitary products.
We think no one should be unable to access sanitary products because they cannot afford them. The church loo is a discreet location for the plain bags which contain enough sanitary product to last a couple of days. Each bag comes with the message…
You are a beloved child of God.
With every blessing from St Mary’s Barnard Castle. x
