On the eve of Mothering Sunday the choir held a special ‘A Mother’s Pride’ performance at St Paul’s Covent Garden after which members of the audience generously donated to the collection for our work. We’d also like to say a big thank you to members of ‘Friends of Housing for Women’ who generously gave their time to organise the collection.
All of these funds will go towards purchasing Breezie tablets which will be used with our elderly tenants, these tablets are specially designed to help the elderly and those less familiar with technology to get online.

A huge thank you to the estate agents KFH (Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward) who have continued to show their support for Housing for Women with gift cards, donations and toy donations to service users at our domestic violence refuges this Christmas.
KFH generously supported Housing for Women earlier this year raising £10,700 through 50 of their staff members running the London Estate Agents 10k race for Housing for Women, and if that wasn’t enough they have kindly offered their support to our domestic violence refuges in the Borough of Greenwich.
£2,950 worth of gift vouchers were issued by all 50 KFH branches across London, these were then distributed to all women and children that we are supporting so they can enjoy Christmas whilst they are staying in the refuge. Please see the photos below to see KFH staff(Penny Guest, Regional Lettings Director, Kelly Durdey, Lettings Manager at the Blackheath branch, Natasha Clayden, Sales Administrator, Grace Moloney, Lettings Administrator and Tegan Williams, Press Coordinator) distributing vouchers and also toy donations.
Thank you KFH for this extremely generous support of Housing for Women this Christmas!

Jakki Moxham, H4W’s CEO, recently commented in the Independent about new proposals to use ‘community resolution’ to tackle domestic violence.
Jakki argues that such a policy could prevent victims from coming forward, reduce confidence in the police, and hinder the ability for both police and specialist agencies such as H4W’s Domestic Violence services to provide vital support.
