DeniseWow! How beautiful are these ! Staff at our local CO-OPs have been busy making these beautiful cushions for our women and families here at Women’s Aid. We were absolutely blown away! There were so many and so much love gone in to making them. As if that wasn’t enough, they also presented us a cheque for £3,495 !! to help some of our families through Covid. The money really has been a lifeline just to help women and children who are struggling in many different ways. Thank you so much to everyone at CO-OP who has helped, we really do appreciate it Love from staff, volunteers, women and children at Women’s Aid x

DeniseDay for Girls is a project we have been running for just over a year. It helps girls in other countries to gain access to feminine hygiene products. These packs have been made by dedicated volunteers who attend workshops monthly at our centre. We were very pleased and proud to have taken 20 full packs to Issy in York so they can be distributed to the villages and to the girls who need them. Well done everyone involved - a job well done x Click here to download a newsletter or visit our Day for Girls page for more info
DeniseA group of workers from Engie gave up a day at work to give their time to support Women's Aid Staff from Engie gave up 2 working days to come and help us to do some much needed work in the back of our Hainton Square Charity Shop They all worked tirelessly taking down walls, cleaning, plaster boarding and filling 2 huge skips ! This work has saved us thousands of pounds and will help us to raise much needed funds to sustain our support services, including those for children We have to continually fundraise and one way we do this is via our Charity Shops so the staff, volunteers, women and children at Refuge would like to say a huge THANK YOU to you all for helping us x
