Success for Rubies with funding from the Tampon Tax Community Fund
Over £9000 secured to help develop the charity in 2019
Rubies has been awarded over £9000 by County Durham Community Foundation from the ‘Tampon Tax Community Fund.’ This fund allocates money generated from the VAT on sanitary products to fund organisations that improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls. The grant will help us develop the work of the charity over the next 12 months and has enabled us to appoint Liz Edwards as our part time C.E.O.
We will be focusing on strengthening our relationships with local schools and on recruiting, training and supporting new volunteers so that we can reach more girls with the message that they are valued and unique.
