2.6 Walking Challenge & 26 Toiletries Bags Completed Raising Funds for Lighthouse Women’s Aid

Our two challenges have raised almost £200 for Lighthouse Women’s Aid.  They do sterling work for women who have suffered domestic abuse and their services are no more needed than right now during lockdown.

On Sunday 26th April our President Pat walked 2.6 kilometres, not very far but quite a long way for her.  Accompanied by her other half they left home just after 11am, taking the footpath through the fields to the bridge over the River Min (which meanders along to RSPB Minsmere), then continued to Fen Lane where they walked along until reaching the banked wood which is carpeted with bluebells.  A beautiful walk with lots of wildlife in evidence.  Then came back home arriving  at 12.10.  If you would like to make a donation please get in touch.   Lighthouse do a brilliant job helping women  who have suffered domestic abuse ,  and demand for their services has increased significantly increased during lockdown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And our Secretary & Programme Action Officer Joyce made a total of 26 toiletries bags, that will be purchased by members and subsequently filled and given to Lighthouse to provide a welcome when clients come into the Refuge, often with nothing but the clothes they stand up in.  Thank you Joyce for your dedication.
