The Marketing People have proudly raised money for Black Country Women’s Aid, by organising a Wear Purple Day. Thank you so much to everyone who supported us and helped us raise a fantastic amount of money to help the deserving charity.
On 9th October we held our Wear Purple Day at The Marketing People’s offices in aid of Black Country Women’s Aid (BCWA). We all wore purple and welcomed clients and friends with tea and cake in exchange for a small donation.
BCWA supported over 8000 women, children and men last year who were victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Many of these fled home with nothing but the clothes on their back, and scars from their trauma.
The charity offers refuge accommodation and counselling, plus love and support to help the victims look towards a safer future.
With over 24 calls an hour to BCWA’s helpline and their 6 refuges almost full, we knew we needed to do something to help, and we encourage you to do the same.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported our Wear Purple Day and, with your kind donations, we have raised an astonishing £255 for Black Country Women’s Aid. We know this money will make a huge different to the lives of those less fortunate than us.
