Refuge at Christmas

Today 340 women and their children will be waking up in one of our 38 refuges, enjoying a safe Christmas thanks to Refuge, our incredible staff and our wonderful supporters.

We are delighted to announce that all our clients will receive a Christmas gift.

“I wanted to say thank you on behalf of myself and my child. It was so lovely to know that someone was thinking of us and to see the smile on my sons face when ‘Santa’ still found him. It meant so much to feel safe and that people out there have not discarded us. Thank you so much for your kindness.”

Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for supporting our first ever Refuge Advent.  Over the last 25 days we have raised awareness of our work, reached more women who need us, whilst raising funds for our essential services.  Thank you.
