Events in the community are important to us as they help us in lots of ways. They raise awareness of domestic abuse and get people talking about a topic they often shy away from. They also help us raise our profile - so that when people need our help, they know where to find us.
Fundraising through community events allows us to spend money raised on the things that grants and Trust funding often doesn't cover. We use this funding to buy items like emergency mobiles for a victim at risk, birthday presents for a child in our safehouse or outings during school holidays, to help our children just be children again.
Big or small, all our community events make a difference.
