Soroptimists in Leigh and the surrounding area are acting as local co-ordinators for The Red Box Project.
There are red boxes in all seven local high schools; and the Pelican Swimming Centre in Tyldesley has put in a request for one. ‘Period poverty’ is an emotive – and serious – issue.
Success depends on sustainability. The Soroptimists have already placed a donation box in Morrisons supermarket, and agreed three more donation points. This will help maintain the supply of sanitary products on an ongoing basis.
This project relies on community kindness – all donations go to help those girls who struggle on a monthly basis.
