Hibernian are delighted to announce a new partnership to tackle period dignity for fans and period poverty in the wider community.
The club has partnered with Hey Girls, a Dunbar-based social enterprise company set up to tackle period poverty, to provide free products for fans at Easter Road. Female fans will be able to access free Hey Girls products in the washrooms at the stadium from this Saturday’s match against Dundee.
It is estimated that 1 in 10 women in the UK struggle to afford period products. Hey Girls operates a Buy One Give One model, which means that for every box of products sold, a box is donated to someone in need via a network of donation partners including schools, colleges, food banks, women’s shelters and community centres.
