What can I say??? Again, apologies for not keeping to my initial intention of updating you all on this blog every two weeks. No excuses, except that we are getting busier and busier each day. As more and more people hear about us we are having to travel further afield to give talks or deliver sanitary pads and tampons.
We have been talking to a number of Unions in the North Staffs and West Midlands Regions and we have had some really great support. Both financially and practically. Please check out our blog which lists the Unions who have contributed to our funds and also some of our local Councillors in Stoke-on-Trent who have also donated. Although these donations have been invaluable we are also so very grateful to the individual donations without which we would never have been able to achieve what we have done to date.
A quick update regarding #AllOurSchools campaign.
Every single school who responded to our offer of help has been supplied with pads and we will continue to supply them as long as we have the funds to do so. We are now supplying over 30 schools and colleges in the area and we have now been contacted by other charities in other parts of Staffordshire asking for help. More on that in my next blog. We are also going to speak to the M.P. For Crewe and Nantwich, Laura Smith, who has seen the need herself for help in schools in her constituency.
One last bit of information and this is so very exciting for us. We have been accepted to take part in Tesco #bagsofhelp and during the months of November and December shoppers will be able to vote for us by placing a token into our box at the front of the store. There will be three charities to choose from so please if you are in the following stores please choose very carefully and then #PopYourTokeninourBox.

Tesco Superstore, 291 Newcastle Road, Trent Vale,
