Eastbourne AM supports REFUGE at Christmas

Wendy-11-150x150

 

ONCE again we have donated 9 sets of hampers to the REFUGE home in Eastbourne, something we have been doing since 2004.

Refuge supports 3,000 women and children on any given day through a range of services, including refuges, independent advocacy, community outreach and culturally specific services.

Two women a week are killed by a current or former partner every week in England and Wales – leaving two families every week bereaved due to domestic violence. Refuge supports families who have lost a loved one to domestic violence.

Refuge’s award winning campaigns aim to educate the general public and ultimately prevent domestic violence by ensuring that women have the information and support they need to plan a safe escape.

The club is delighted to once again be supporting this amazing and very worthwhile charity.
