Menopause experts Henpicked are set to host a workshop in Walton-le-Dale.


The MenopauZzz event will seek to help customers and colleagues improve their sleep after recent research showed that menopause symptoms cost on average three hours sleep per night.

Dunelm’s MenopauZzz campaign is backed by TV and radio presenter, Lisa Snowdon, a vocal advocate on the need for wider support for those going through both perimenopause and menopause.

Trainers from Henpicked – the UK’s leading menopause hub – will be on hand to answer questions relating to the transition and offer advice on how to create the optimum sleep environment.

Amanda Cox, Chief People Officer and Stores Director at Dunelm said: “At Dunelm we appreciate menopause can be incredibly debilitating, with poor sleep a key side effect – that’s why we are offering specialist support to both customers and colleagues at this life milestone.  


“Our MenopauZzz campaign provides workshops, educational resources and effective product recommendations. It coincides with the launch of our new internal Menopause focus, which includes menopause buddy training, a new menopause policy and manager guidance to make sure Dunelm is a place where everyone feels that they belong.”

The recent findings additionally found that only 18 per cent of women in the North West are happy with the menopause help that’s currently available to them, outside of visiting their GP. 

The results also revealed that only 29 per cent of women in the North West would turn to a male family member or friend if they were struggling with menopause, with the majority of those surveyed admitting they are most likely to turn to their doctor or female friend for support. 

The workshops will happen at 20 stores across the country. 

The session at Dunelm at the Capitol Centre will take place on Tuesday 4 October at 5.45pm.

Workshop attendees will receive a gift voucher to redeem against Dunelm products including those designed to help with menopause symptoms, such as cooling pillows, mattress protectors, duvets and bedding sets.
