Alison Bourne of DASH – Domestic Abuse Stops Here – sent the club a letter following our donation
Can I extend my heartfelt thanks to you and your Soroptomist colleagues who so kindly donated to us at your AGM? It is so helpful to have support such as this; so much of our income is ‘restricted’ which means we don’t have any choice on how we spend it as it’s been granted for a specific purpose. When we receive ‘unrestricted’ monies it gives us the freedom to provide the specific things our current clients need, whether in the community or in our refuges (we have three).
Since the lockdown, we have been the busiest we have been in our 42 year history, with domestic abuse incidents increasing exponentially, so your support is more critical than ever.
Please pass on our thanks to all your members and I hope we can all meet again before too long.
Chief Executive Officer
