West Mercia Women's Aid has recently requested some of its friends and supporters from around the world to contribute to our blog news feature, This month we have a another thought provoking blog from one of our frends in Palestine. http://squiggles4900.wordpress.com/

Organisers of an event which aims to raise money for women and children suffering domestic abuse are urging residents to come along and take part.

Taking place on Saturday 20 July, the event has been organised by Hereford City Sports Club in partnership with West Mercia Women’s Aid.

This is the third year the two organisations have teamed up and hopes are high that it will be the best yet.

Funds raised in previous years have steadily increased and it is hoped that the money raised this year will have a substantial impact on delivering services to those most in need.

Two outstanding individuals have been recognised for their work in tackling domestic abuse.

The accolades – presented by The Worcestershire Forum Against Domestic Abuse – were awarded to Jemma Price from West Mercia Women’s Aid and Sarah Chapman, web developer at Worcestershire County Council.

Jemma has been honoured for her work in heading up the CRUSH project, a local initiative that – due to its success – will be rolled out nationally across the UK later this year.

A leading event for specialist providers of domestic and sexual violence services will welcome a local speaker from West Mercia Women’s Aid.

The Women’s Aid Annual National Conference – which is being held on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 July – will see Jemma Price speaking about working with young women, the locally acclaimed CRUSH Project and how effective peer education can be as a forum for preventative work.
