Charity calls on crafters and businesses for a festive event this November
The Women’s Centre Cornwall will be hosting a Christmas Fair in Lanivet on November 28th to raise funds for the charity. Stalls are now available to book from just £25.
The event will feature festive gifts and crafts as well as the opportunity to take part in some holistic therapies.
Fundraiser Tamsin Chapman-Gunner Said: “We are delighted to be able to organise our first face to face fundraising event since the pandemic began. After last year we hope that this Christmas will feel much more festive, and we are really looking forward to seeing what goodies our stallholders will bring.”
“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on face-to-face fundraising events, and we are excited to be able to start planning them again. We also hope that events such as these will help increase awareness of our service and encourage more people who need us to reach out.”

If you are a women or girl over the age of 11 who has been affected by domestic or sexual abuse you can speak to us by calling our helpline. Our helpline is available Monday to Friday 10am to1pm and Monday and Thursday evenings 6 to 9pm by calling 01208 77099.
The Women’s Centre Cornwall offers a wide range of free, safe, and confidential specialist support to women, and girls over the age of 11, who have experienced any form of sexual and/or domestic abuse. We also run a helpline, online forum, and Community Engagement projects so we can strive to ensure that we can reach all those affected.
After more than 25 years of work in Cornwall, we still identify that sexual and domestic violence are the biggest barriers to women’s empowerment. In addition to providing specialist support to survivors of abuse, we actively reach out to women who are at risk of abuse, marginalised women and those who experiencing a negative impact in their daily lives due to the consequences of being abused. We want all women and girls to have their full human rights, reach their potential and actively participate in their own lives and communities.
Sexual and domestic abuse are deeply traumatic experiences with serious and longstanding consequences including negative impacts upon relationships, self-worth, ability to concentrate, confidence, health, and wellbeing. Many women will experience anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. Our empowerment model of support helps women and girls to understand what has happened to them and how it has affected them. With our support, women and girls are able to move on with their lives, restore their sense of wellbeing and have a much better chance of reaching their potential and living happy, fulfilling lives.
In the last year we have provided specialist one-to-one support to over 1000 women and girls who have been abused.
