Pink Box News Update - Thursday 15th March:
We now have over 30 boxes sponsored and the first ones will be ready to go out next week. We still need sanitary pro...ducts to fill the pink boxes though.
We have new donation points and the updated list is as follows:
Bidston Community House
Beaconsfield Community House
St James Centre
New Beginnings New Ferry
Leasowe Development Trust
Vale House, Vale Park
We will soon have a ‘just giving’ page for people to donate cash to the Pink Box Campaign so we can buy stock and we’ll also be launching our ‘Pink Box Volunteers’ so people can help us keep the pink boxes stocked up. We are hoping some major retail chains will be coming on board very soon.
The most exciting news is that if our project works, Feeding Britain will roll out our scheme to the rest of their UK locations so that we can end period poverty across the country.
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us with offers of help and to request a box. We are trying to keep up with demand and we’ll respond to everyone as quickly as we can. You are amazing!!

More good news for Wirral...
This is brilliant. Giving women choice about where they have their babies is so empowering. Being somewhere where Mums and partners are relaxed and comfortable with excellent staff on hand can really enhance the experience of having a baby. Find out more about the new service...

We will soon by launching our ‘Pink Box Campaign’ to tackle period poverty in Birkenhead.
Our aim is to provide every school, youth club and community house in... Birkenhead with a pink box. In the box will be free sanitary products for girls to use. So instead of the embarrassment of asking for sanitary products they can just go to the pink box.
