The Drive was a success and the society managed to collect a massive 398 tampons, 320 pads, 140 liners, 2 packets of feminine hygiene wipes, one packet of sanitary product disposal bags and £72.80 which will be given to Aberdeen Cyrenians and used to purchase more sanitary products.

Vice-President of GEF, Gillian Barron, said: "It went really well, the reception we got was even better than expected with lots of people seeming genuinely interested in learning about period poverty. We got an amazing amount of donations from staff and students and would definitely be interested in hosting more events like this in the future."
