'Free Wednesdays'- What it's about

free wednesdays

Starting in 2015, Rianna Garguilo [Welfare Officer 2014-2016] introduced ‘Free Period Wednesday’s’ where the SU gave out free sanitary products such as tampons, sanitary towels and Mooncups to Sussex students every Wednesday.

 

Fast forward to now, a take-one-leave-one scheme ‘Free Wednesday’s’ has been set up by May Gabriel [current Welfare Officer] which runs every Wednesday between 12 to 1:30pm in Falmer House Reception. With the new ‘Free Wednesdays’, not only can you now pick up drug-testing kits and condoms, you can also still pick up sanitary products. Seeing as it is a take-one-leave-one scheme, you can either keep both sanitary products or leave one which goes to the Red Box Project who give out free sanitary products to local schools!

 

If you want to help set up and run the stall, email campaignsadmin@sussexstudent.com. You don't have to be available every week, any time you give will be appreciated
