10th December 2019 – BH Living news article – The Hampton Trust raises awareness of domestic abuse
As part of White Ribbon Day (25 November) and the 16 days of action that follow, The Hampton Trust has been travelling far and wide putting on events to raise awareness of violence and abuse against women.
The charity, based in Hampshire but branching out across the South, have been travelling as far South as Cyprus and to the most Northern parts of Scotland asking authorities and members of the public to pledge to stand against domestic abuse.
White Ribbon Day takes place in late November, where the wearing of the white ribbon stands for never taking part in, condoning or staying silent about violence against women, and is followed by 16 days of action, which ends this week.
But The Hampton Trust has been running events throughout the whole of November, including a Ladies Self Defence Class, an ADAPT (Accredited Domestic Abuse Prevention Training) practitioner training day, and attending meetings and conferences to discuss the issues.
One of the key activities the trust has accomplished is the signing of the White Ribbon Day Pledge Poster, obtaining hundreds of signatures including The Bishop of Winchester, the players of Aldershot FC and doctors and nurses from Basingstoke hospital.
