We're taking over the country... and Women of The Year..

Thank you so much for your continued support. We are now up and running in Wales, Scotland and the North of England is steaming full speed ahead. Huge thank you's to Ailsa and Beauty Bay, Jennie Patterson and Louise and Rakesh at - without whom our reach would not be a quarter of what it is and my hair would be white, not greying.

It is astonishing to me that we are still not even a year old. To cap it off - I have been asked to attend the Women of The Year lunch in October - literally on our first anniversary. Anything that raises the profile of domestic violence and the needs of the women and children in the care of Refuge and Women's Aid is always welcome and I am attending as a representative of all the hard work you, our supporters have put in.

So please, keep it coming - in October we will start a campaign for the teenage girls in shelters and in November we are repeating last year's shoebox Christmas campaign for the younger children.

Once again, thank you thank you thank you.  You are amazing.
