How can I help you?

You can help us by spreading the word about us with your friends and also on social media. If you are interested in setting up a collection point in your area we could get you to become an area co-ordinator. As a area co-ordinator you would need to get collection boxes set up in your area. You would then be responsible for collecting donations once a month and dropping them off to the agreed charities. We would also need you to join local facebook community pages in your area and promote the charity so that others become aware of it.

Please get in touch and we can give you further information. 

Do you accept reusable products?

Yes we accept new re-usable pads and menstrual cups.

Are you a registered charity?
