Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant is on a mission to recruit every council in North Wales as a corporate supporter of the international White Ribbon campaign and following initial positive feedback, extended his drive to local businesses. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Last month, Mr Sargeant wrote to more than a dozen companies in his constituency asking them to pledge their support to the international campaign and help Wales become a world leader in ending domestic violence and abuse. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I am already receiving some positive responses from companies and organisations, including Coleg Cambria and E.ON, who run Connah’s Quay power station. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s great that local businesses are willing to support such an important campaign and they have been sent the relevant information by my office. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s a fantastic follow-on from the extremely successful campaign to gain corporate support from local authorities and I look forward to receiving more positive replies.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
