Let’s Orange the World!

Several members of Bridgend Soroptimists provided knitted, crocheted or fabric orange flowers for a display at Llandaff Cathedral on 25th November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

The flowers will be on display in the cathedral from 25th November as SI Glamorgan’s contribution to the UN #OrangetheWorld campaign (Campaign to eliminate domestic violence) 30th Anniversary. This is running for 16 days from 25th November to 10th December.

Over 3500 flowers have been crocheted, knitted or made from fabric scraps and represent the 3500 women in England and Wales who report an incidence of domestic abuse to the police.

A magnificent display helping to raise awareness and work towards the ending violence against women.

Two members of SI Bridgend were delighted to have witnessed this magnificent display when they attended the Light a Candle event in Llandaff Cathedral on 25th November.
