Free Period Poverty campaign donations to Derry schools

Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy who has been leading the Period Poverty campaign in the city said “For the past number of months I have been receiving donations from local businesses and members of the public towards the campaign.

“I felt International Women’s day would be a good occasion to delivered baskets of free period poverty products to schools in the city. Due to heavy traffic there were a few schools I was unable to get to, but I will get them their baskets in the coming week.

“This is by no means going to resolve all the problems of period poverty, but it is the start of a process of getting as many people as possible to buy into the “On the Ball” campaign.

“I know several businesses in the city have joined the campaign and now have products provided in their toilets which is great and shows how our city is moving forward.
