Thank you. And a shocking statistic.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all of your recent donations. We have reached the stage where we cannot possibly open every package and check who it is from - we are now a (much-needed) middle man and making large weekly drops around the UK.

Please do not be offended if we do not thank you personally. I'm sure you will appreciate the scale of what we are trying to achieve and the man hours that it would take away from simply helping the families in need.

Please know that everything sent to us goes directly to women in Refuge and Women's Aid shelters.

To this day we have done all of this without any financial contributions - we rely solely on people's goodwill and their own personal time.

So thank you thank you thank you. Long may it continue.

I'll leave you with this sobering statistic - this is why we do what we do.

For women aged 19-44, domestic violence is the leading cause of illness, injury and death: greater than war, cancer and motor vehicle accidents.
