Help is at hand for girls and women in Daventry struggling to pay for period products.

Supporters of ‘A Bag for Flo’ are appealing for businesses to support the project which is going to be discreet, free and anonymous.

Laura Cooper-Wortley, who is one of the organisers, said: “We are at the beginning stages of the product so are looking for companies and organisations to support us with providing products. They can contact me by using my email [email protected]

Laura Cooper-Wortley and Natalia Lasys want to help girls and women who are struggling.

‘Period poverty’ means being unable to access sanitary products and having a poor knowledge of menstruation often due to financial constraints. In the UK, 1 in 10 girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products, while 1 in 7 have struggled to afford them.

Laura added: “Once the scheme is ready those requiring products will be able go visit stores and other places around Daventry and ask for ‘A Bag for Flo’.”
