Sapphire Coast residents have the chance to share dignity with women in need this month. 

Share the Dignity's sanitary drive kicked off last week, raising funds and awareness to ensure all woman in the community do not go without basic necessities like pads and tampons.

Local campaign organisers Jill Francis and Alexia Talbot have placed collection boxes at various locations around the Bega Valley. All items collected will stay in the local area.

“It is horrible to think that some women have to use toilet paper or newspaper as a replacement or they have to choose between food or sanitary items,” Ms Talbot said.

Collection boxes have been placed at the Merimbula News Weekly office, Brief Affairs, Sapphire Aquatic Centre, Tura and Eden Libraries and Eden Coles.
