Reaching for the as ever non-existent toilet roll in a club last night, I noticed a sticker on the dispenser which simply read “Sheffield Rape Crisis” followed by the helpline number. Someone had written “Thanks, this really helped me” on it, and another woman had added “ditto”. It’s a great idea – so get printing and sticking! You can buy labels from Staples, and Publisher has a template for all the standard label sizes so it’s really easy to do. Rape Crisis phone numbers can be found here.
While we’re on the subject, can I just say a big fuck you to the guy in Sheffield station earlier today who was wearing a bright yellow t-shirt with “RAPE!” written on the chest. You’re lucky I was busy waving off a friend, or you’d have really got an earful.
