I recently started creating rings and jewellery for fun and thought it would be a great opportunity to raise some money for a brilliant charity like Refuge.
Refuge believe that no-one should have to live in fear of violence and abuse. On any given day Refuge supports more than 6,000 clients, helping them rebuild their lives and overcome many different forms of violence and abuse; for example domestic violence, sexual violence, so-called ‘honour’-based violence, human trafficking and modern slavery, and female genital mutilation.
This past year has been a difficult one for us all. Refuge have seen a huge surge in demand for our services since the various lockdown measures began. £1 for every ring I sell will be donated to Refuge.
The money raised through my small business will fund the specialist services offered by Refuge, which includes refuges, independent advocacy, community outreach projects, culturally specific services and the 24 hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline.
