Belles players Sophie Scargill and Eva Madarang were on hand to deliver a donation of sanitary products to the Intake Wellness Centre on behalf of Weldricks Pharmacy as they look to raise awareness of period poverty.

Period poverty - an inability to access adequate sanitary products due to financial constraints - affects one in ten women and girls in the UK. In some cases, this has led to missing school or work and can have an adverse effect on the lives of young women.

Belles players are looking to raise awareness, break down taboos, and kick start a conversation about period poverty by making this donation.

The products will be given to local women and girls living under the poverty line around the town by the People Focused Group (PFG) and were donated by Club Doncaster partners Weldricks Pharmacy.

Jackie Steel, head of operations for Weldricks, said: “We were delighted to be able to team up with one of our sanitary product suppliers to support this charitable donation from Doncaster Rovers Belles.

"It’s great to see the products going to such a worthwhile local cause.”
