Emma Sanders from the K J Smith Basingstoke team has donated Christmas gifts to domestic abuse charity 'Stop Domestic Abuse' at their refuges in Basingstoke and Aldershot.
The charity is an innovative and unique provider of all servies to those affected by domestic abuse. Emma said: "The local refuges hold a very special place in my heart. I’ve seen first-hand the devasting effects domestic abuse can have on family’s. It is often thought that once a women leaves an abusive relationship she is safe and free from any further abuse. Unfortunately leaving the home is often just the first hurdle that they have to overcome."
Here at KJ Smith we understand how once the women have taken the brave step to reach out and get help, they are often left questioning if they have done the right thing by removing the children from the home.
It is especially hard at Christmas when they are completely isolated from their friends and family who may be many miles away. The gifts we have bought will allow each women to have a little something to open on Christmas Day and hopefully the gifts will allow them to take a moment and think about how incredible they are.
