SI Winchester and District members took part in the White Ribbon event in the High Street on Friday 25th November. The event was organised by the local Domestic Violence and Abuse Forum, of which SI Winchester is a member, to raise awareness of domestic violence.
The Mayor of Winchester visited the stand in St Maurice Covert for photographs on one of the busiest days for Winchester during the Christmas Market and on Black Friday. Trinity House had provided bunting of 112 white ribbons, wrapped around a column in memory of that number of abuse victims killed this year. Shops and stallholders nearby sported white ribbons and SI members handed out ‘Loves Me, Loves Me Not’ book tokens at local bookshops.
