  • Sequins for Survivors

Normally at this time of year everyone’s buying party clothes, spending money on the office secret santa and buying mugfuls of mulled wine. This (unprecendented!) year we’re asking people to donate a portion of their would-be festive spend to help victims and survivors of domestic abuse.

  • Climbing Wall

We’re looking for people to challenge themselves and have some fun by scaling the climbing wall at the Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre (LE4 5PN)! You can do it alone, or get a few mates/colleagues/family together to take it on (if there are 8-12 of you we can organise a private session).

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!
