Refuge

We provide expert, specialist support to women&children fleeing domestic violence

Charity Registration No. 277424

Story

I'm running the Liverpool Marathon on 9th October for Refuge.

Its shocking some of the statistics about Domestic Violence;

· One in four women is abused during her lifetime.

· One in nine is severely physically abused each year.

· Two are killed each week

·On average, a woman is assaulted 35 times before her first call to the police.


Please sponsor me for Refuge, helping raise;

  • £10 could allow a woman to buy her child essential materials for school – many women arrive at Refuge with nothing but the clothes they are wearing and do not have the means to buy the things they need.
  • £50 could fund a session of play therapy for a group of four children, helping them to overcome the trauma of witnessing or experiencing violence.
  • £72 could pay for two days of fun activities for a group of children in our refuges.
  • £75 could fund a local support group session for women who have experienced domestic violence.
  • £96 could pay for a training workshop for 5 women, helping them to enter the employment market and regain their independence.
  • Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

    So please dig deep and donate now.

    Thankyou!

    • I've started a change jar to add to my sponsor money. It's a 1L Staropramen glass. Should hold a few pennies!
