Wow - What An Amazing Response!
At the beginning of January I set out to raise money for the charity Refuge. Refuge helps women and children in a time of crisis and abuse from partners. As our UK lockdown has continued for nearly a year I first heard about the awful situations of women and children being in lockdown with abusive partners, from Refuge:
You raised £470 for Refuge and that is amazing, at the start of January 2021 I had only hoped for £150 at the most
Information From Refuge:
Almost one in three women aged 16-59 in England and Wales will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. Thank you for stepping up for Refuge
How your fundraising will help Refuge
£10 could fund a single phone call that ultimately saves a woman’s life.
£39 could provide a mother arriving at a shelter with the essentials she needs, plus toys and books for her children.
£78 could provide a remote community worker with a mobile phone that could save a woman’s life.
£117 could help fund the running of Refuge’s National Domestic Abuse Helpline for one hour.
£156 could help fund three nights in a Refuge shelter for a woman fleeing domestic abuse.
You can either purchase the Tiny Paintings and Prints from the gallery online using PayPal or email me (avoiding Paypal charges for myself) and I will send you an invoice. Either way you will receive your painting or print in the post.

Well done Jane. A fabulous and fabulously successful initiative for a truly deserving cause.
