Charity – BE Supports REFUGE

 

Burrell Education is proud to be a supporter of Refuge - a charity that supports women and children experiencing and at risk of domestic violence and abuse.  Over  20,000 women will become homeless because of domestic violence and two women each week are killed in England and Wales by a current or former partner.

Refuge relies on voluntary support to sustain lifesaving services for women and children.

If you would like to help Burrell Education to support Refuge it's really simple.....

When women and children turn up at safe houses in a bid to escape violence and abuse they have very often left home in a hurry and arrive with very few belongings and sometimes no money.  The charity can afford to provide a safe place with the basics but often struggles to provide extras such as basic toiletries (shampoo, deodorant, sanitary wear, body wash etc.,).

What Can You Do To Help?

Would you be able to bring  just one toiletry item when you attend a Burrell Education course?  Think of what you would need if you had to flee home quickly with empty hands.  What would you need to help you maintain your personal hygiene and make you feel a little more comfortable at this difficult time? Anything at all would be helpful to and be appreciated by these women.

What Will Happen To Your Gifts?

I am in touch with staff at Refuge and on a regular basis your gifts will be taken to their offices for distribution to the women they help.

So, if you can help, simply bring along your one toiletry item when you attend any course and I'll ensure it gets to these very grateful ladies.
