A special thank you to staff from Darlington Building Society who kindly donated over £100 of resources to the school’s Red Box Project. The Red Box Project is a nationwide campaign to combat period poverty and help girls stay in school when they have their period. Items donated by Darlington Building Society included tampons, tights and essential toiletries. Siobhan Metcalfe, Customer Support Officer organised the donations and said ‘We are just glad to be able to support young women at Longfield who need a bit of extra help’.
