October was international Domestic Violence Awareness Month, to raise awareness of this well known but rarely discussed topic we hosted a raffle to raise money for Cambridge Women’s Aid, a charity which means a huge amount to all of us here! Our goal was to not only raise money but make people aware of domestic abuse and the devastating impact it has on the lives of so many.
We were successful on both accounts and as you can see our lucky winner, Aarty was beyond thrilled with her bundle of prizes.
None of this would have been possible without the support of some very generous businesses who contributed prizes and the people who donated. thanks to all of you we were able to raise £410 for the charity. The money raised will go toward supermarket vouchers for vulnerable women and children across the City of Cambridge, COVID-19 has seen a rise in financial abuse and the money donated will go toward tackling this.
