Day for Girls

Days for Girls (DfG) is a world-wide project which involves women coming together to make washable, easy to use, feminine hygiene kits for girls in developing countries. In some countries, due to poverty, many girls have no feminine hygiene provision and can’t go to school during menstruation, therefore missing out on large parts of their education. (1 week in 4) We currently run small & friendly monthly workshops (Thurs evening / Sat morning) for women of all ages to help make up the low cost, cleverly designed kits, which are then packed by volunteers and delivered to the girls and women. Any skills (machine sewing, cutting, pinning, hand sewing, etc) Click here to download our newsletter or email for more information dfg@womensaidnel.org Come along to help make a difference and help change lives!

Collection Tubs

Could you or someone you know, have a collection tub in your office or on your shop counter to help raise money for domestic abuse victims/survivors? Every penny really does help and it all amounts up at the end of the year. If you would like a tub dropping off please give us a call or email manager@womensaidnel.org.

Smartie Tubes

We are asking friends, family and colleagues to fill a Smartie Tube with 20p’s. All money raised will go to our children's services in refuge. A full tub of 20p’s raises about £12.80 !! and you get to eat the smarties first !!

“Give a shift”

Some of our domestic abuse services would not be available if it wasn't for the success of our charity shops AND the charity shops would not be successful if it wasn't for the dedication of a great team of volunteers. Do you think you would like to join them in 'making a difference'? Could you come just for a shift to try it out? We need help in any area - sorting, pricing, ironing, cleaning, serving and/or till work?  IT REALLY CAN BE WHATEVER YOU LIKE DOING For more information - pop in to any of our shops (link to page) or call us on 07766 227 536 and we will be happy to talk to you.
