COVID-19 Emergency Sleep Well Appeal
We provide refuge accommodation for up to 13 women and 26 children at any given time and for up to four months. We support around 33 women per annum and 75 children (some stay less or longer than four months due to their circumstances). Due to COVID-19, hygiene and health & safety we must provide clean and new bedding for each and every woman and child in refuge.
Every woman and child has the right to sleep in a warm, comfortable and clean bed.
The Target for this Appeal is £6,400 to provide 40 (39 and one spare!) sets of bedding and mattresses for everyone currently staying in our refuge.
Thank you for making a difference.
A bedtime story…
Georgie and Myra love their new home in refuge, away from harm. Their mother feels safe too and is no longer frightened, or crying. They have fled from domestic violence after being harmed over a number of years. Today, they enjoy playing and reading on their bunk beds in a safe place. The family are beginning to thrive on their journey to happiness. The duvets provided through this campaign will create a warm and comforting “hug”. This is a hug creating happy memories to take with them (as well as the duvets and bedding) when they move on to their forever home.
