Jenny Palmer, who works in student welfare, said: "It's sometimes easy to forget that there are students from poorer backgrounds and something like period poverty can be something it is difficult for them to admit.

"It's a very private thing.

"This donation will help us to help them. They will be discreetly placed in college so students can access them without any fuss.

"We're very grateful to Asda."

Sinead said: "We were more than happy to help through this donation."
