A sexual health service is giving out free glow in the dark condoms for Halloween.
LTC Healthcare, which has recently won a contract to supply condoms in North Yorkshire, will hand out the ominous prophylactics at YorSexualHealth centres in Northallerton, York, Selby, Harrogate and Scarborough until Saturday October 31.
The condom distribution scheme is intended to reduce the number of unintended teenage pregnancies and sexual transmitted infections in the county.
Tina Ramsey, clinical services manager at YorSexualHealth, said: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with LTC to increase greater access to free condoms across York and North Yorkshire.
“The scheme will target young people and those most at risk of sexual ill-health.
“The next part of this scheme is the development of a ‘C-card’ scheme which will enable service users to register with the scheme and then pick up condoms from a range of venues, such as GP surgeries, colleges and youth services.”
Ken Leigh, from LTC Healthcare based at Boroughbridge, said: “We were delighted to win the tender to provide the condom service to YorSexualHealth and we look forwards to some close partnership working to help the staff at YorSexualHealth to achieve all of their aims.”
