A Cornish charity is inviting you to join their virtual flashmob

Published at 4:04pm 10th July 2020.

A mass charity flashmob party has been organised to raise much needed funds for The Women’s Centre, Cornwall.

The charity, run by women for women, is dedicated to helping all women and teenage girls in Cornwall face the challenges that modern life can present.

They offer free, safe and professional support for women and girls over the age of 11, some of whom have faced abuse and traumatic events.

Through their services, The Women's Centre empowers them to live the lives they deserve and want.

"Lockdown has been particularly challenging for a lot of women we support.

Enforced and prolonged isolation has had a detrimental impact on many women.

For some women this has meant being literally locked in with an abuser. Means of support and escape have felt beyond reach and respite from the debilitating impact of physical, emotional and sexual abuse has been minimal.

For other women – the impact of lockdown has been retraumatising and triggering in relation to experiences of abuse as a child.

Throughout all of this The Women’s Centre Cornwall has continued to offer support. We have wanted women and girls to know we are still here. Still here to support, listen and empower."

Bec Bayliss - Community Development Co-ordinator, The Women's Centre

To help raise money to keep the centre going, Kerpow are organising a huge, virtual flashmob party and they're asking as many people as possible to get involved.

"The Women’s Centre Cornwall is delighted to be collaborating with the mighty Kerpow to gather women and girls together for an online flashmob party.

Support, awareness and funding raised by organisations such as Kerpow are vital in the survival of The Women’s Centre Cornwall. These much needed funds will allow us to continue supporting women and girls via our specialist support services.

BIG thanks all & hopefully see you on the ‘virtual’ dance floor!

Bec Bayliss - Community Development Co-ordinator, The Women's Centre

Limber up and learn the moves then join in the fun on Friday 17th July at 8pm.
