25th anniversary celebrations for Fylde charity

Local specialist charity Fylde Coast Women’s Aid is holding a Celebration Ball on Saturday 6 October 2018 at Blackpool’s Imperial Hotel to mark its 25th anniversary in style.

The evening of festivities will get underway with drinks at 7pm, followed by dinner and a live band. There will be a chance to bid on some exclusive lots in a silent auction, fabulous raffle prizes up for grabs and a photo booth for revellers to snap a selfie. Attendees are invited to dress to impress.

FCWA Assistant Manager Glenda Smith said: “This is a chance for us to celebrate all the great work that Fylde Coast Women’s Aid has achieved over the last 25 years and promises to be a fantastic night.”

For a quarter of a century, FCWA has supported victims of domestic abuse, welcoming more than 1700 women and 2000 children into its refuges and helping over 25,000 service users in the community.

Fylde Coast Women’s Aid was founded in 1993 after a group of local women joined forces to challenge the lack of provision for victims of domestic abuse in this area.  The first refuge opened its doors two years later after a successful campaign in the local press to raise funds brick by brick. Two additional refuges quickly followed. The charity now offers a wide range of services for adults, children and young people.
