BBC Radio 4 appeal for the national domestic violence helpline

Honor BlackmanOn Sunday 30th March, 2008, Honor Blackman will be reading the BBC Radio 4 Appeal to raise funds and awareness for the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline (run in partnership between Women’s Aid and Refuge).


The BBC Radio 4 appeal is a three-minute appeal on behalf of the BBC’s chosen charity for that week.  It encourages listeners to donate over the phone, online, or by post.


The appeal will be aired at 7.55am and 9.26pm on Sunday 30th March, 2008, on BBC Radio 4: 92.4 – 94.6 FM and 198 LW.  You will also be able to listen again online at for a week after the first appeal broadcast.


Please help us raise as much money as possible by listening in!  We want to tell as many people as possible about the broadcast, so let your friends know and ask them to tell their friends as well!  The more people who listen the more money will be raised – all of which will go directly towards providing a potentially life-saving helpline service for women affected by domestic violence.


Please spare five minutes of your day to listen to the appeal and forward this link to as many friends and family as possible.


Thank you
