Pupils raise awareness for period poverty

Femsoc group organise a series of activities for Menstrual Health Awareness Week

This week, Northampton High pupils have been raising money, and awareness, for Menstrual Health Awareness Week. We’re very proud of our FemSoc group for organising a series of activities to engage Senior students in conversations surrounding period poverty. The High School is incredibly proud to support this important cause ahead of the national Menstrual Health Awareness Day, which falls during the half term on Tuesday 28 May.

In line with this year’s theme, ‘Together for a #PeriodFriendlyWorld’, pupils aimed to remove the taboo around periods with fabulous information boards and a dedicated pink/red themed accessories day! A huge thank you to our staff and students who participated.

The group also raised £150 on Wednesday with a bake sale fundraiser for Eve, a local charity that supports families affected by domestic abuse. We are very grateful to members of FemSoc who gave up their time, during a busy assessments’ week in school, to support the cause. A huge well done to all involved!

We are still gratefully accepting period product donations in the Senior School foyer and would like to encourage our entire school community to help us in collecting vital supplies for Eve. Thank you in advance for your generosity and for joining us in our efforts to end period poverty.
