This year and in support of International Women's Day, the Luxe team decided to do something a little different and asked for donations to support Leeds Women's Aid. We collected items such as un-used toiletries, new bedding and baby clothing, nappies and sanitary wear. These items where for use by women and children in the emergency refuge.
Leeds Women’s Aid is an independent charity, formed in 1972, providing services to women and children affected by Domestic Violence & Abuse. Their services include emergency refuge accommodation, 24/7 telephone helpline, drop-in services, healthy relationship programmes, Independent Domestic Violence Advocates, working with women experiencing complex needs, community development and support & interventions for children and young people.
We are so proud of how many donations we were able to collect! Your generous donations took two car journeys!
