Staff and volunteers from Ormiston Families’ domestic violence service have raised more than £250 from a charity collection at the Tesco Store in March.

The money raised will be used to buy therapeutic resources at a community group in March for women and children who have experienced domestic violence.

Service Manager Marc James said: “The response from the public was fantastic and we received lots of positive comments about what we’re doing which was really encouraging.”

Ormiston Families’ domestic violence services aim to tackle the problem from a number of angles. They include support groups for victims, rehabilitation work with perpetrators, and education and awareness raising.

The charity has been serving young people across East Anglia for more than 20 years and currently runs around 40 services across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Bedfordshire.

Their work includes children’s centres, providing children’s visits across the region’s prisons and support for parents through a range of parenting courses.
