Reading Time: < 1 minute

Hi everyone! It’s Charlotte, your Community and Volunteering Officer. After 24 days, three donation points and countless support from students, the community and SUSU, the Red Box Project has come to an end.

We finished distributing the donations yesterday, and as you can see from the car there’s no way we could’ve estimated just how successful this project would be! I am so unbelievably grateful for every single person who took the time to donate.

Across all the campuses we received:

71 packs of sanitary towels
70 boxes of tampons
7 packs of liners
4 mixed bags
176 school starter packs
2 packets of wipes
2 sanitary towel tins
1 box of fab bags

This then brings our grand total to 351 which, as I have said, is completely above and beyond what we expected, so thank you so much!

All of our donations have been evenly distributed to collection points supporting The Red Box ProjectThe Homeless Period Southampton and Trinity Winchester.

First and foremost, I would like to thank my friend Nick for taking the time out of his day to help me with these donations, I couldn’t have done it without you.

I would also like to massively thank Hayley for her constant and continued support as well as An-Sofie, the marketing team and the rest of SUSU for helping me turn this project around in such short notice!

Finally, I would like to thank October BooksTrago LoungeThe Hub – Eastleigh and Trinity Winchester for accepting our donations and ensuring that they reach those who are affected the most by period poverty.

Again, I am blown away by the generosity of the donations and I’m so unbelievably thrilled that this was such a success! So many lives are going to be changed by these donations, so thank you. Thank you so much!
