As businesses throw open their doors again, Black Country Women’s Aid (BCWA) needs a few bold people to step in and say please!
BCWA is an independent charity which has supported survivors of violence and abuse for more than 30 years. It offers a range of community services and refuge for women, children and men who have experienced domestic abuse, sexual violence, stalking, exploitation and modern day slavery. The holistic approach not only deals with immediate trauma but also helps survivors re-build life for them and their families.
The charity seeks outgoing, sociable helpers who have the confidence to approach places such as local hairdressers, pubs and golf clubs and ask them to ‘host’ a collection tin. You would be responsible for finding good homes for the tins, keeping track of them and returning them to BCWA with the cash collected.
As your relationship with the businesses grows there may be opportunities for further fundraising by organising events such as quiz nights.
