The Red Box Project was started in the Portsmouth area and aims to provide sanitary protection for girls at school. Investigation in both primary and secondary schools uncovered a huge unmet need. The project has now spread to other areas of the country, and perhaps as a result of the publicity it has attracted, the government has agreed to provide funding from early next year.
S I Solent East was inspired by a talk from one of the local co-ordinators Roxanne Martin to make a contribution to the project which the club decided was right up their Soroptimist street! Members are pictured with some of the items they collected.
