Safe in Sussex’s 6th Annual Shocking Shirts and Funky Frocks Month!

West Sussex based domestic abuse charity Safe in Sussex will be asking the public, businesses and education establishments to support their 6th annual Shocking Shirts and Funky Frocks June to raise money to support those affected by domestic abuse across the county.

Safe in Sussex provides support in our four refuges and through one to one and group sessions. We engaged with well over 1000 adults and children last year.

How you can help us. Use the excuse of National Cream Tea Day on the 28th June to dress up and have afternoon tea – no one can say no to tea and cake, can they?

But if that does not work for you – how about holding that tea party on any day in June, have a dress up or dress down day, organise a competition for the most shocking or funky outfit, or you can use the templates on our website for a colouring competition.  We would just love you to get involved and have fun while helping raise funds for our service.

Fundraising Manager Kay Birch said: “One in four women and one in six men will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime – help us be there for them.”
