Share The Dignity Charity

Friday, 27 November 2020

I acknowledge the continued work of Share the Dignity, which is a national charity working to end period poverty in Australia. Every year my office assists in its donation drive to provide female hygiene products to those in need. I am always honoured to do my part in assisting this fantastic cause. It is so important that we work towards increasing equitable access to critical hygiene for women of all circumstances.

This is the fifth, possibly sixth, year in a row that I have participated in the Share the Dignity drive and it is always fantastic to see my electorate get around and behind the drive with so many wonderful donations. I thank Simon Tolhurst, Rochelle Courtenay, Jennifer Witheriff, Nick Crethar, Matt Smith and Shayne Gilbert for all of the work they do in maintaining the prosperity and commitment of the organisation. The event has been particularly important during the recent pandemic with more and more women doing it tough. 

Well done to everyone involved. I look forward to participating again next year and I wish them all the best for the year ahead.
