A law firm has teamed up with a women’s refuge for a campaign against domestic violence.
Marsden Rawsthorn Solicitors has partnered with Clare House to promote the White Ribbon campaign - 16 days of direct action against domestic violence.
It was launched on 25 November, which was Violence Against Women’s Day and ran until yesterday.
The White Ribbon campaign aimed to raise awareness of domestic violence specifically targeting women who are aged 45 and over.
With the help of the Preston and Chorley-based solicitors, Clare House aims to reach victims in the South Ribble area through a poster campaign in hairdressers.
Janet Walker, business development manager at Marsden Rawsthorn Solicitors, said: “Meeting with the support staff at Clare House has really opened our eyes to the invaluable work that they do to help victims of domestic violence.
