Charity Events - December 2017
This year 104 of us are running the Santa Dash to represent the 104 women murdered every year at the hands of their current of former partner in England and Wales. Our youngest participant is 7 and our oldest is 80.
Lauren has been patron of Aurora for over 6 years. Lauren has a passion for empowering women and admiration for the services that the charity provides. Aurora is not a 'sexy' charity, its gritty and depressing in many respects, which makes fundraising even more challenging! But from the work Aurora do there are many inspirational success stories that would not exist without the dedication of CEO Shonagh and the Team at Aurora.
