Domestic violence

Have been to a couple of events about domestic violence in the last week.  Last Thursday went to a candlelit vigil on the high-street that aimed to emphasise the problem, which got a good response, although the wind had a negative impact on the candlelit part of the vigil!

On Monday a more lighthearted event was a quiz night to raise funds for the White Ribbon Alliance.  Our team (The Read Roses – all Labour party members!) started strongly but we didn’t do so well on Tube stations and ended up coming 5th.  Was a really fun evening.

Go here for info about men working to end men’s violence against women.  visit here to find local services.  This isn’t just an issue for women, so if you a man affected you can also find out about help there.
