OK I hold my hands up. I haven’t done a blog for quite some time
so, I can only say sorry. However, we have been so very busy with
the growing demands on our help.
We are now supplying over 90 charities and foodbanks and over
180 schools and colleges. Luckily, we are still getting the amazing
support from our followers so I can only say thank you to each and
every one of you who have donated to our fight to eradicate period
poverty, at least in our local area. We are constantly being asked to
have stands at various conferences and to talk to a growing number
of organisations, so busy times.
However, much of our time recently has been spent on organising
the first period poverty conference in the West Midlands.
This took place on 6th June at the New Vic Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent
and was hosted jointly with New Vic Borderlines.
I have to be totally honest and say that I was extremely nervous
about hosting this event and spent many a sleepless night thinking
about all the things that could go wrong. I needn’t have worried.
We had the most amazing day and were supported by many, many
people. We were extremely lucky to have the support of three local
schools whose girls gave wonderful and truly inspiring performances.
These were Trentham Academy, Sir Thomas Boughey and The
Coppice Academy, all schools in the Newcastle and Stoke-on-Trent
The feedback from people who attended could not have been more
favourable and everyone had a wonderful and informative day.
There are many, many photographs on our Facebook page so please
check them out.
Please keep checking us out on our social media pages and please
keep on raising awareness of this iniquitous plight which many of
our sisters are faced with.
