Cash boost to help children and women fleeing domestic abuse

Solihull Editorial 6th Mar, 2024   0

A CHARITY which helps Solihull women and children who have suffered domestic violence and abuse has been handed a generous donation.

Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid was given £1,000 from West Midlands law firm mfg Solicitors.

Sharon Lerry, senior associate and chair of the law firm’s CSR Committee, said: “The team at the charity are well known and widely respected for the amazing work they do every day. We know they will put the donation to great use and we hope it will help them continue to deliver their wonderful support programmes and activities.”

Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid relies on donations and funding throughout the year which enable it to run activities and wellbeing sessions for women and children.

Sessions also include activities such as themed craft and cooking sessions which aim to help people regain confidence and learn new skills.

Kathleen Williams, business and infrastructure support manager at the charity, said: “Our services operate through public sector funding, corporate sponsorships, grant funding and public donations.




“We also rely on the generosity of our supporters and therefore we’re delighted to receive the donation from mfg’s charitable foundation.

“The money will be used to run arts and crafts and wellbeing sessions with women and children who are living in refuge having fled abuse. These group sessions promote self-care and allow families to relax and enjoy themselves in a fun, safe environment.”
