Tackling Period Poverty

Castlegate & Derwent Surgery are pleased to be a collection point for ‘The Red Box Project’ in connection with Cockermouth School.

Problem: In the UK, some young women in our schools are finding it difficult to access sanitary products.

Result: Tearful panics in the loo. Wadded up toilet roll. Anxious embarrassment. Missed lessons. Missed education.

Solution: The Red Box Project collects donations of sanitary products and pants from members of our community and puts them into red boxes to give to local schools. The Red Box Projects supports disadvantaged young women throughout their entire period.


The Red Box is located on the left of our Reception Desk we would welcome any donations of Sanitary Towels and Tampons, also new knickers/ pants (age 9-10 upwards and small adults)
