Encouraging open and honest talk about periods

Meet the Facilitator: Jon

You've probably all heard about our betty buses, right? Our pink and yellow beauties are travelling around the country encouraging young boys and girls everywhere to be more open and honest about that time of the month. We thought you'd want to meet some of our fabulous betty ambassadors who are leading the way in encouraging those conversations.

This week we'd like to introduce you to Jon!

Jon trained as an actor and worked nationally and in the West End before deciding to pack it all in, get a life, and have a small person.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself

I recently learnt that a duck’s quack doesn’t echo, and nobody knows why. As a result I have sworn to dedicate the rest of my life to solving this mystery.

What is your favourite thing about the betty bus?

The looks it gets. The bemusement of people seeing it for the first time, and their reaction when we tell them what it is and what we’re doing with it!

Why do you think the betty bus is so important?

Because for too long the subject has been taboo, and we are changing that attitude one school at a time.

Your favourite moment of the tour so far?

Running sessions outside on a school field. Working in a perfectly natural environment, talking about a perfectly natural subject!
