Northampton High raises awareness for Menstrual Health Awareness Week

Femsoc students promote a #PeriodFriendlyWorld with a series of fundraising events

Next week, we are proud to be celebrating Menstrual Health Awareness Week. The theme for this year’s campaign is: Together for a #PeriodFriendlyWorld. In a #PeriodFriendlyWorld, the stigma and taboos surrounding menstruation are history. It is a world where everyone can access the products, period education and period-friendly infrastructure they need.

Here at Northampton High, we are committed to supporting this important cause and helping those facing period poverty. We are pleased to share that our wonderful FemSoc group have organised a series of activities to engage our Senior School community in this event:

– Over the course of the week (w/c Monday 20 May), there will be period product collection points in school for students to donate packs of tampons, pads and other period items. Donations can be given in during form time, or placed directly in the collection buckets in the Senior foyer. All contributions will be donated to Eve, a local charity that supports women who experience domestic abuse.
– On Wednesday 22 May, students will be encouraged to wear pink or red accessories along with their uniform. Over lunchtime, Femsoc will be hosting a bake sale fundraiser for a charity of their choice.
– Femsoc have created an informative display for the Senior Foyer which explains more about periods.

We look forward to raising awareness, money and items in support of Menstrual Health Awareness Week. Thank you in advance for supporting our fundraising efforts and helping to reduce period poverty.
