A WREXHAM based community project has been given the backing of a local Member of Parliament.

The organisers of WINGS Wrexham, who aim to provide free sanitary products to schools, the Foodbank and any other agencies where a need is identified, met Susan Elan Jones MP recently to discuss their work in tackling period poverty.

Following the meeting with Suzanne Nantcurvis and Kath Goodchild the Clywd South MP said: “It was good to talk with Suzanne and Kath about this remarkable and worthwhile project.

" am pleased to hear that the project is hoping to expand into Clwyd South and I will do all that I can to support it.

"It’s infuriating to know that so many women and girls face risks to their health and the indignity that period poverty often causes. I have nothing but praise for WINGS Wrexham who give their time to carry out this excellent work”.

The organisation has placed collection points across Wrexham where people can donate sanitary products. A list of WINGS drop-off points can be found on the project’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wingswrexham/.
