Once again WHWBSW are a collection point for Share the Dignity’s April Dignity Drive.   What is the Dignity Drive?   Each April and August, Share the Dignity ask the public to donate pads, tampons and sanitary items to collection points around the country. At the end of the month, they donate them to partner charities/organisations to distribute to women in need who are usually homeless or experiencing family violence.  Small dignities make a big difference! Items donated stay in our local area and are distributed to women in need so if you’d like to donate please drop in to our office at 1/116 Koroit Street (3rd door at of the GenR8 building next door to Brown’s Bakery).
