Jenny Marra MSP launches Christmas Appeal for Dundee Women’s Aid

13 December 2011

Jenny Marra MSP is today launching a Christmas appeal in support of Dundee Women’s Aid.

The appeal is to gather essential items for women and children staying with Women’s Aid over the festive period.

With Christmas being a difficult time for some families, Dundee Women’s Aid will see an increase in women seeking refuge from domestic abuse.

Women and their children may only arrive at a refuge with the clothes they are wearing so there is a real need to provide for basic items.

Members of the public can support by donating basic essentials including toiletries, bath towels, children’s toys and supermarket vouchers.

Items can be handed in to Jenny Marra’s office at 15/16 Springfield, Dundee, DD1 4JE ( office hours Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) or phone 01382 202584 for collection.

Jenny Marra MSP said,

"Women’s Aid provides essential support and refuge for women in Dundee but they need supplies and donations, especially at Christmas.

"I know this is a busy time of year for everyone but I would be very grateful if people could respond to this appeal with any toys, children’s clothes or toiletries that they can spare."
