Club members from the South West came together by train from all over the region to join the Swindon club, with guest appearances from Tara Newley-Arkle and the Police Commissioner for Wiltshire, Angus McPherson. There were over 50 members who walked from Swindon station through the town offering ‘love me, love me not’ bookmarks to anyone that was passing by. This was to mark the elimination of violence against women day which is on Monday.
The rally finished at the Steam museum with talks from the Deputy Lord Lieutenant and Angus McPherson before listening to a women’s group of survivors and thrivers who have come together to sing their special song.

We enjoyed listening to local charity ‘Voices’ at our supper meeting and heard what valuable support they give to victims of domestic violence. They have been around for only a few years but have made a huge impact on women’s lives and helped them through difficult times.

A lovely young lady called Alice came to talk to our group about the debilitating disease endometriosis. What an inspiration she was and we learnt so much about the nature of the disease and the fact that I can affect teenagers as well as older women. More importantly it needs to be spoken about and should not be a taboo subject. We should be looking at more ways of highlighting this awful disease.
