On 8 March 2020, we invite you to gather your friends or colleagues, have a bake off, a bun fight, eat cake, have a quiz but most of all celebrate everything about women and all that they achieve for International Women's Day.

By holding a coffee (or tea) and cake morning on behalf of Women's Aid Leicestershire Ltd, you would be raising awareness of the important work that we do in supporting those affected by domestic abuse in Leicester and Leicestershire. You would also be raising vital funds to help us to continue to support victims of domestic abuse and violence in every step of their journey to a safe, independent life.

As 1 in 3 women are affected by domestic abuse, it could be your mother, sister, cousin or friend who is suffering in silence and needs our specialist support. All donations made to Women's Aid Leicestershire always go directly towards supporting the women and children in our refuges and those accessing our Independent Domestic Violence Advisory service or specialist Children's services.

Holding a Coffee Morning on, or around, 8 March 2020 is an enjoyable way of sharing information about our services and raising funds, whilst hopefully having an enjoyable time with friends.
