Whilst playing for Belfast City Rockets, Helen McBride unfortunately broke her leg during training. So not to disconnect from the roller derby community during recovery, she set up a crowd funding campaign to raise money for a roller derby themed subscription box. Helen teamed up with other designers and artists within the community to help launch Pack Up! in May this year.
With a new theme every month, each pack include 5 items. A monthly rolling subscription costs £23 per month, but there is also an option of a One Month Only pack for £25.

This months theme was ‘Fresh Meat’. Now, for those of you reading this with no idea what that actually means, it’s the term used for an intake of new skaters.

This is a great subscription box for all who are interested in roller derby (including myself). I’d say it was good value for money based on the quality of the contents. And I’m sure each box will improve with new designers and artist Helen comes across.
