From the 19th August and over the course of 30 days, I will be cycling a minimum of 150 km to support Kaleidoscopic UK, all made possible with the support of eActive Health Lounge in Wokingham.
Based in the Thames Valley, Kaleidoscopic UK is an organisation of domestic abuse survivors supporting other survivors of domestic abuse in all its forms across England and Wales.
Money raised will be used to;
• Purchase ‘ring door bells’. This simple camera device enables survivors to communicate to people at the front door without the need to open it. This is particularly important for survivors whose perpetrator may turn up at their home.
• Support the running of our Sanctuary Groups. These free, independent, survivor led groups offer a safe, confidential space for survivors to talk openly without judgement and to meet others in their situation for mutual support and friendship.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 women, 1 in 5 children and 1 in 6 men will be affected by domestic abuse in their lifetime
Every 2 km will represent a female killed as a result of domestic violence and every 12.5 km a male killed*
Domestic abuse may change us BUT it does NOT define us.
With thanks to you all for your support
* Based on an average of 74 females killed per year; 12 men killed per year by a partner or ex-partner
