Wordless Wednesday: a milestone reached

Women’s Refuge helps over 20,000 women and children in New Zealand each year who are affected by domestic violence. Yellow Belle marks a new phase in Refuge’s history – providing on-going income that will allow the organisation to do even more.

It was lovely to be part of the launch celebration; to be surrounded by strong, passionate women who give so much of themselves to bring about change for the better.

    • So do I Raewyn. The trick will be to maintain the supply of clothing coming into the stores once the novelty has worn off. But there is a great team in place and so much aroha in these wonderful women.
