Domestic Violence Campaigners To March Through Dorchester


Published at 8:43am 17th November 2014.

Campaigners will be marching through the streets of Dorchester later this month to 'Reclaim the Night.'

For the first time they’re inviting both men and women to join them to help raise awareness about violence towards women.

It's part of Women's Action Network Dorset's annual event on 29th November at the Town Hall that'll also include a drumming workshop, a buffet supper and a charity auction.

Tickets cost £3 for the event that runs from 7pm-11pm.

Proceeds raised will go to West Dorset Woman's Refuge so vulnerable mums and their kids can enjoy an outing to a pantomime.

WAND chair Susan Bickle said: "This year we are welcoming anyone who wishes to support an end to violence against woman so for the first time this will not be a female only event and so it is open to everyone."

Last year they raised over £500 so the charity where able to allow the children to buy a present for their mums.
