About Us

Help in Handbags was started by Dr Hannah Barham-Brown on 22nd November 2018. She started a WhatsApp group to see if anybody wanted to fill some handbags with some tampons and give them to people who needed them. By the end of the night she had a logo, a twitter account and fifteen willing participants. By the end of the week she had a house filled with sanitary products and interviews lined up with the local press.
