We are delighted to announce news of this years Reclaim the Night walk which will take place on Saturday 29th November at Dorchester Town Hall – upstairs from the Corn Exchange – between 7pm and 11pm.
The tickets are just £3 and can be bought on the door and include an invigorating drumming workshop with the wonderful Organic Rhythm, a delicious buffet supper and a charity auction led by our Patron Tracey West.
The main event of the evening will be a short march through the Dorchester streets to Reclaim the Night and for the first time, this event will be open to both women and men who want to contribute towards ending violence against women.
WAND chair Susan Bickle says “The march through the streets is a great way of raising awareness of the vulnerability faced by many women through domestic violence, abuse, rape, honour based violence and practises such as female circumcision”.
The money raised from the auction will go to the Dorset Women’s Refuge to pay for an outing to a pantomime and some gifts for the children, but most importantly it will give the children some money to buy a present for their mums which is just from them. Last year we raised just over £500.
If you have an auction prize that you could donate to our Reclaim the Night event, or if you would like to make a cash donation or request more information about WAND, please drop us a line and get in touch.
