The scheme is a community-based, not-for-profit initiative, which aims to support young people whose families may not be able to afford sanitary products. They provide red boxes filled with sanitary items to schools.
The Co-op is proud to be supporting the Red Box Project and is now an official drop/collection point. The products collected will be donated to the following schools: Pelton community primary school; Park View School; Barley Mow primary School; Birtley East Primary School; and Lord Lawson of Beamish.
All businesses on the Drum Estate are welcome to drop off products at the Co-op. Contact Suzanne Patterson for more information.
