Wordless Wednesday: a milestone reached

Yellow Belle; an upmarket recycled clothing boutique owned by Women's Refuge was officially launched last night. Seed funding was provided by NZ Sculpture OnShore, of which I am a director.  Photo: Su Leslie, 2014

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.
