30. Winter appeal 2021 – Womens Aid

Help women and children escape abuse and give the gift of freedom with a one off or monthly donation to Women’s Aid. Covid-19 isn’t the only devastating pandemic affecting women and children today.

Survivors have been living through their own pandemic of fear and isolation long before Covid-19 and continue to do so.

They need your support, especially now, at a time of year we know can be particularly challenging.
