Volunteers needed urgently!
Unfortunately there are a lot of people who wish to see our beautiful refuge shut down and have laid various complaints about us to ...the council and through other channels.
While we do have our regular volunteers we desperately need volunteers on a daily basis to help with the maintenance of the property including gardening and general tidying and maintenance.
If you have time to volunteer please pm us asap. Thank you so much.
Also we have had a few comments and private messages asking us why the women don't do all the work themselves. Please know that the women work extremely hard to maintain the property, however when they are both emotionally and physically scarred the priority is healing. If they have children this is even more important as often the children have left behind everything they know and are terrified due to past experiences. Our women are incredibly hard working and I am proud to say I know them.
