Towel and Tampon Drive 2019

(8 February 2019)

In recognition of International Women’s Day on Friday, 8 March, the Colleges Office has organised a University-wide Tampons and Towels Donation Drive (4 March - 8 March) for local homeless and vulnerable women. Collection points across the University will start collecting sanitary products, so please consider donating.

The inspiration for this originally came from a website called The Homeless Period, which aims to put a spotlight on this hidden problem and encourage sanitary product donations. With limited or no access to sanitary products, homeless women are often forced to go without.

Collection points are as follows:

  • Colleges: Hatfield, Castle, Ustinov (Keenan House, too), St. Mary's, St. Aidan's, St. Chad's, St. Cuth's, Trevs, Stephenson, Hild Bede.
  • Departments: English, Biosciences, Earth Sciences, Law.
  • Offices: CEM (Ushaw), PC044, Finance, E&B, Recruitment, Arts/Humanities PG Centre.
  • Other: Oriental Museum, Bill Bryson Library, Palace Green Library.
