25 November 2017
Despite the driving sleet and cold – plucky members from Blackpool, Blackburn, Garstang, Grange and Pendleside joined Preston Soroptimists on a walk through the town centre to mark the Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The ladies were thrilled that members of Men Against Violence (Preston) joined the ‘throng’ too. It was pretty quiet in the town but the crowd couldn’t really be missed as they were carrying orange balloons, placards and a banner – not to mention the chanting of ‘Stop Violence Against Women!’ No one disagreed to ending the walk at a Costa Coffee in the dry, warm shopping centre!
