Ruth's Fundraising story
Ruth, one of Cardiff Women’s Aid’s volunteers, raised an incredible £613 in 2021 by running a cake and crafts sale. We spoke to Ruth to find out more:
"The event was a success on many levels, my mum and sister also played a key part in this success. Firstly, it was fantastic to be able to get together and have a good old fashioned chat. My mum and I had knitted loads of socks during lockdown and we had completed many many jigsaws throughout lockdown. We needed to put these to good use, so I decided to hold a coffee morning in my garden. The women who came were friends old and new, ex colleagues, and neighbours who were all enjoying a cuppa, cake and conversation. Refreshments were donated by Asda and Tesco. Everyone was very keen to support the wonderful work that CWA does and in total from tickets, sales of socks and jigsaws - we raised £613."
Franca's Fundraising Story
Franca started out fundraising for Cardiff Women’s Aid at the beginning of lockdown, by completing a 2.6 mile walk. This might not sound impressive to start with, until you find out that she did it on crutches with a broken foot. She was amazed by the generosity of so many people who believed in Cardiff Women’s Aid’s mission and who donated to her fundraiser, contributing to an impressive £1,630 total raised for Cardiff Women’s Aid!
Franca says “I chose to fundraise for Cardiff Women’s Aid due to the large rise in domestic violence cases that were reported throughout the pandemic.”
