Suffragettes at Littlehampton book supports local domestic abuse service
Events secretary of Littlehampton Civic Society, Angela Tester author of ‘Suffragettes in Littlehampton’ has raised £728.61 for local charity Safe in Sussex’s Amber House women’s refuge. Angela researched and published the book which commemorates the suffrage movement in Littlehampton.
The book is available in Pier Road Coffee and Art, Littlehampton Museum, East Beach Café, Fireside Books and the Civic Centre in Littlehampton with a suggested donation made to Safe in Sussex.
There will be an opportunity to get a signed copy of the book at Pier Road Coffee and Art, 1-2 Pier Road Littlehampton as Angela will be available to signs copies from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday 18th February.
Louise Gisbey from Safe in Sussex said “We are very grateful to Angela for choosing to support Safe in Sussex in this way. Amber House is a place of safety for women experiencing domestic abuse, empowering women to have choices and opportunities to live their lives free from abuse. It is, therefore, very fitting that a book about the Suffrage movement in Littlehampton is supporting this project.”
Amber House refuge provides early intervention to prevent domestic abuse escalating to dangerous levels. It provides a range of practical and emotional support to women and their children. For families who decide they want to stay together a behavior change programme is available and support is given to the abusive partner offsite.
Safe in Sussex also has a countywide outreach service which is open to both men and women to access, confidential refuge provision and support groups in various locations. To break the cycle of domestic abuse the charity also facilitates healthy relationship educational programmes into primary and secondary schools.
Our annual event is held on the last Friday of June and businesses, schools and community groups take part by wearing some pretty outlandish and funky clothes to work or meetings and make a donation to Safe in Sussex.
The Co-op store in Selsey chose Safe in Sussex to be their chosen charity and offered to do a book sale to raise funds for our charity.
Safe in Sussex held their annual Gingerbread House Decorating Competition. The day was a great success and competition was fierce, the houses were truly amazing. Fay Millar, Brighton Cakes who judged the Houses said “The quality of entries this year for the Safe in Sussex gingerbread competition was phenomenal. Every single house had some amazing decorations and it was really hard to choose a winner.
Safe In Sussex receives 14% of its funding from the government. The rest is through grants, fundraising events, donations, legacies and corporate sponsorship.
Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.
We are fortunate to receive some grant funding from Children in Need, the National Lottery and local authority organisations, but we are constantly looking for new ways to attract funding.
