Reclaiming the Night

Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Reclaim the Night another fantastic event.  Around 30 people took part, starting with the fabulous Organic Rhythm drumming workshop.  We then headed outside for our annual march through the high street.  We headed back to the town hall for a delicious supper and then on to the auction hosted by our patron Tracey West.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated prizes – including books from Waterstones, handmade cards and beaded jewellery, hampers from Unison, toiletries from Lush, Abbotsbury Children’s Farm, Bournemouth Aquarium, Pecorama, Athelhampton House and Vivi Lounge to name just a few. A special thank you to the West Dorset Women’ Refuge Welfare Committee who donated prizes they’d collected for an event that they’d had to cancel.

We raised a fantastic £702 pounds from the auction and tombola.  The funding raised has been spilt between the West Dorset Women’s Refuge and the Sexual Assault Referral Unit (SARC) in Bournemouth.
