I was recently contacted by Girl's Guide, who are organising 'Swish for Victory', a clothes swap event in support of Women's Aid which is the national domestic violence charity that helps up to 250,000 women and children every year. It works to end violence against women and children, and supports over 500 domestic and sexual violence services across the country. However, recent cuts to these services mean that 60% of refuge services and 72% of outreach services face the prospect of no government funding this financial year.
This is such an important charity and I was thrilled to have been approached. Also only too happy to send something along to be auctioned on the night as part of their fundraising.
I made up this necklace, using girly pink and green vintage glass beads to match their lovely poster and also included vintage charms to represent the love and support that these families all need and deserve.
Swish for Victory is being held at The ACE Centre, Nelson, Lancashire on Thursday 26th May, so if you're in that area, it sounds like the place to be!
