LWA

Take part in a Fundraising Event

Charity Fundraising Events at LWA are always fun and immensely rewarding experiences. LWA organise several fundraising events each year.

Online LWA Events:

  • The Feel Good Guide

Feel Good guide and canvas bag

Things can seem pretty bleak at the moment, so we’ve designed the Feel Good Guide to shine some positivity into your life! Each week is focused on a different part of feeling good – Self, Mind, Body and Soul – and there are activities and worksheets for each week. There are also exclusive workouts from Yoga with Isabel and SkyTribe Dance Studio and everyone who purchases a guide gets 15% discount off the amazing Bloom and Wild and 20% off Aurelia Skincare.

The first 15 people to purchase a guide will also be entered into a prize draw to win a skincare hamper from Essential Embrace, a natural brand by a local mother-daughter duo!

The profits made from this guide will be used to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse – so taking part should already start making you feel good! Find out more and purchase your guide here.

 

  • #WearShareAware

Michael Sinclair and his mother Zoe have launched the Wear, Share and Aware campaign to support LWA and raise awareness for domestic abuse! As Survivors themselves they decided to use their experience to help others. They are selling tshirts for £20 and every penny of that comes to LWA, they then want people to share a selfie of themselves in the tshirt and use #WearShareAware. Find out more here.

  • Songs and Stories

The amazing Sonia ( a domestic abuse survivor), her husband Gary and their friend Tony performed self-penned songs and Sonia told her powerful story of escaping abuse. You can watch it here: https://fb.watch/2dS8zcz4Wf/

There are walls suitable for everyone 5+ years old, and is a great way to get out of the house and have some fun! All whilst helping local victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence. If you want to fundraise further for us you can ask people to sponsor you!
