Lynda Bellingham, actress, author and survivor of domestic abuse has agreed to become a patron of West Mercia Women's Aid.

Jan Frances CEO said, "We are absolutely delighted that Lynda has agreed to be our patron, she is an inspiration to all survivors of domestic abuse and we look forward to working with her in the future".

A special event to celebrate West Mercia Women’s Aid 30 year anniversary will take place next month in Worcester.

The event – which will welcome comedian, actress and writer Jo Brand – will take place at The Old Rectifying House on Monday 11 March from 12midday to 2.00pm.

As keynote speaker Jo will focus on celebrating women; other speakers will include West Mercia Women’s Aid Chief Executive Jan Frances and Chair of the Trustees Nick Fisher.

A new initiative headed up by Herefordshire organisation ‘Growing Local is Going Local’ has been given a £2,100 donation from Cargill’s Meat Business in Hereford. Working in conjunction with West Mercia Women’s Aid (WMWA), the ‘Family Plot to Plate’ project is designed to help empower  women affected by domestic violence and abuse by encouraging  them  to grow and cook their own fruit and vegetables. 

West Mercia Women’s Aid’s CRUSH Project, a support and awareness raising programme for young people aged 13-19, has received a vital funding boost from BBC Children in Need.

Our Chief Execuitive Officer, Jan, has co-signed an open letter from representatives of various domestic abuse support services who are concerned that the recently announced benefit cuts will have a detrimental effect on the services we offer. 

The letter was published by The Guardian on Sunday 13th January, and can be read by clicking here.
