Supporter Events

Our supporters always inspire us with their personal generosity and imaginative personal challenges. Organisations who have already told us of events they are planning this year are:

Fundraising Events for 2023:

Minchinhampton Golf Club

A big thank you to Minchinhampton Golf Club for choosing us as their Charity of the Year 2022 and for showing such a positive interest in our work over the past twelve months.

We were overwhelmed to receive a cheque for £12,101.43 from Su Mallon and Simon Veder Cain (the 2022 Ladies’ and Men’s Captains).

In addition to this generous financial donation, the many thoughtful and practical gift boxes which the golf club members provided for the women in our refuges during the year have been very much appreciated.

Shine House Tours are raising funds for us this spring through their guided visits to private homes for those with a passion for interior design in the Cotswolds.

We will post the details and links as soon as we can. We can’t wait!

Stroud Business Women’s Network have invited us to give a talk at their lunch on the 26th of May.

We are exited to meet another group of dynamic women supporting our work.

Manor House Amberley have made us Charity of the Year when they host Rain or Shine Theatre Co on July 24th with their production of The Recruiting Officer.

You are invited to bring a picnic and a blanket.

We will supply a link as soon as booking is open.

Forest of Dean Inner Wheel continue their amazing fund raising efforts and provide exquisite crafts as well as hampers for the Refuge.

It was an honour to attend their Marathon last year.

Chalford Stitchers are donating  a wonderful collection of quilts yet again. We will share some photos soon.

Cirencester Soroptimists will invite us for a  talk and pop-up cafe later this year; we will show case some recipes from Inspired, our wonderful cookery book.

It will be good to finally meet in person following, their donations and hampers during lock down.

…and we would be delighted to visit and give a talk for any more of these amazing groups who work tirelessly for the good of women and the community.
