From Last Years High Sheriff
Many of you will know that last year as High Sheriff I focused on raising awareness of domestic abuse on victims & their families in Wiltshire. With the help of many CB folk I also raised over £25,000 for a number of charities who support these victims. I am also Chair of Swindon Women's Aid which provides refuge accommodation to 22 women & their families at any 1 time, as well as delivering a domestic abuse support service across the town.
Last Friday we opened our first charity shop "Survivor@SWA" in The Parade next door to Debenhams. We had a really brilliant first day of trading with lots of people through our doors.
