After 25 miles a week for 5 weeks and the equivalent of 23 marathons, the team reached their target of 623 miles and raised an amazing £3,360. Jacqui from Splitz visited Quickmove to accept the cheque and shared with us how this will boost their work.
“The money raised by Quickmove has been put towards our volunteer Buddy Scheme. This is a group of dedicated volunteers that provide 1-1 emotional support, empathetic listening, information and advocacy for individuals in recovery from the trauma of domestic abuse, once intensive support has ended.”
Research suggests that 1:4 women and 1:6 men experience domestic abuse within their lifetime, it is therefore highly likely that you may know someone who has experienced some form of domestic abuse either currently or in the past.
If you or someone you know needs help please ring Splitz SPA on 01225 775 276 (Mon- Fri 8:30am – 5:00pm) or the Out of hours service run by Swindon Domestic Abuse Service on 01793 610 610.
