Safeline set to throw ball to raise awareness and funds

Leamington Editorial 14th Feb, 2017   0

SEXUAL abuse charity Safeline is throwing ball to raise awareness and funds.

The Warwick-based has see its workload trebled in the past year and is now supporting some 6,000 people.

Chief executive Neil Henderson told the Observer: “Because of high profile child sexual abuse stories – footballers revealing abuse in particular – and because of the high quality services we provide, demand is at an all-time high.

“To meet that demand we need more resources. Only two per cent of all our financial resources comes from individual or community donations. Most financial resources come from government but these funding streams are high risk due to cuts and their short-term nature.




“We need to reach out to the communities we support and ask them to help us because we put so much back for so many people in our community.”

The ball is at The Crowne Plaza in Stratford on Friday April 28.


Tickets cost £55 with £30 from each ticket going to the charity.
