“With hundreds of women and children supported through our domestic abuse support service DAWN each year, we are delighted to be able to offer the Survivors Network: a peer led network to build confidence, skills and offer support to families. Thank you to Worcestershire Community Foundation for making this vital work possible!”

I just wanted to touch base with you to tell you what an amazing difference the Tampon Tax funding has made to us at The Monday Night Club this year. It enabled us to find (and afford) a great new venue at Worcester Arts Workshop. We have a wonderful group of young female volunteers who are all enjoying their new responsibilities and taking part in training we have arranged.

Our team has a proud record of fund raising for great causes for local and national charitable purposes. As part of our social mission to help local causes in Worcestershire, we felt that we wanted to focus on giving something back to the local community that supports our business. We are therefore delighted to now be working with the Worcestershire Community Foundation who do some fabulous work across the county supporting numerous local initiatives
