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.

South West Regional clubs came together to ‘rail against abuse’. The United Nations Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women was marked on 25th November by travelling by rail and wearing orange and handing out book marks called ‘Loves me, loves me not’ We all came together at Bristol Temple Meads and we walked to the Next Link Centre and eventually walked
to the Lord Mayor’s Chapel at College Green. Tara Newley joined us for the rally.

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.
