An international day aimed at ending violence against women will be marked in  Flintshire by Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant and domestic abuse support workers. 

Carl will join forces with staff from the Flintshire Domestic Abuse Safety Unit (DASU) to raise awareness of White Ribbon Day, which takes place on Tuesday, November 25.

Carl said:

“Last year’s White Ribbon event, which saw us tie white ribbons to a large oak tree in the same spot, went really well. Lots of people saw the display and asked questions, which was really good.

“This year I will be in Cardiff on ministerial duties on White Ribbon Day itself. I wanted to arrange an event beforehand to raise awareness of the day, in the hope more people would get involved in the campaign by supporting a local event, or organising one of their own.”
