I am raising this money as it is a personal cause to me as I was in a local women’s refuge when I was 12 years old . My mum was a victim of domestic violence for years at the hands of my dad . My mum , myself and my two younger brothers fled with just a small bag of belongings . The refuge allowed us to feel safe for once in our lives and we were helped to be rehoused . I am now 44 and a mother of two children myself and because of my personal experience like to support the refuges . My job involves working with victims of domestic violence ensuring they get the support they need from the relevant agencies.
Spending Christmas is tough in a refuge when you are away from your other family , friends and home as the location is secret . That’s why a few Christmas treats for these women and children would make it more bearable
