A Thank you to the 80 participants of our sponsored walk which took place on 23rd October 2020, to the men who took up the challenge, and finally to our sponsors Lloyds Banking Group.
The walks took place in gardens, offices and on the streets. We were bowled over with the ingenious ways the mile walk was completed. Your valiant efforts to don women shoes and walk a mile raised £2,770.00 which will be used to furnish a new refuge for women escaping domestic abuse.

WAITS is an established charity which has worked with women for over 20 years.
We offer 3 key services which aim to support women to achieve their goals, feel empowered and gain independence.
“Women with the power to make and influence decisions and make positive change”
We support women, on a one to one basis, to address issues such as welfare benefits, resettlement/housing issues, domestic abuse, isolation, physical and mental health, crime, the fear of crime and much more. Unlike some other organisations, we are not time-bound, meaning we are able to offer ongoing support for as long as it is needed.
