Our first newsletter in 2017 contained a plea for help in raising funds for a new refuge to support women in need of safe confidential accommodation fleeing domestic abuse.
We are so pleased to tell you that thanks to the efforts of our Friends of WAITS volunteers who have worked tirelessly to raise funds through bag packing, car booting, sponsored walks and a marathon; we raised a whopping £8,752.40 in 2017 which has enabled WAITS to obtain a 3-bedroomed house in West Birmingham to house women fleeing domestic abuse.
We have had tremendous support from business in Birmingham, who we wish to also say thank you:
- Lloyds Banking Group Customers Services Team
- VWV Solicitors
- Marks & Spencer’s Merry Hill Dudley
- Medical Devices Technology International Limited (MDTi)
- Jam House
- Hyatt Regency Hotel
- Grosvenor Casino
- Gem Magazine
- EDS Data Solutions
- GR8 Printing and stationary
We are looking forward to opening the refuge in March 2018.
