Happy New Year and Thank You!

Firstly, I wanted to share with you a part of the Thank You card received from Refuge for the huge amount of donations collected just in time for Christmas:

'Thank you for organising and donating all the beautiful Christmas presents. As always, your generosity has brought a lot of joy to our women. 

Please pass on our thanks to all the people who contributed to the donation.

Warm regards and Happy New Year on behalf of Refuge.'

We have started the New Year as we mean to go on - we have donations being collected in Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow and East London.

If you have previously emailed us asking how you can help - please bear with us as we try and collate all the offers of support. In the meantime, our connections at the various shelters are stronger and if you want to contact us again giving us a specific area/town where you would like to support/donate please do.We should be able to supply you with your nearest contact and help get your goods to people suffering local to you.

Thank you for all of your help so far - we look forward to helping many more families suffering from domestic violence in 2011.


  1. Thank you for the update and it's wonderful to hear that you're bringing joy to women who are having such a hard time. It's amazing how such a simple idea (though I know it's not simple to execute and organise) has touched people in a real way.

    Keep up the fantastic work. Hopefully something will have made it's way to Dino's today :)

  2. I'd like to help in the Southampton area?!

  3. Oooh thats great news. Where in Liverpool? I've got a little pile of goodies to donate.

  4. I'd like to help more local to Leicester/Nottingham?

  5. It is lovely to know it has made a difference already.
    Anywhere in Suffolk?
