Hi

My name is Ivona Konopek and I want to take part and successfully complete this challenge to help raise vital funds for families that have been affected by domestic abuse and stalking. This will be challenging for me as I have never done anything like this before! Getting muddy is not my thing but if this can help raise awareness and funds I am willing to do it!
I chose to do this challenge as I am passionate about preventing and stopping domestic abuse as no one should live in fear of violence and abuse.
Safer Places is a charity that has been supporting survivors of domestic abuse for over 40 years and is a client lead organisation ensuring that clients are empowered and their voices are heard. Safer Places is accessible and anyone at risk of abuse can access the services. Safer Places approach to support is trauma informed, holistic and tailored around the individual person's needs. Safer Places are already making a positive difference to people's lives and by doing this challenge I want to help even more by raising awareness and support which is needed more than ever.
Safer Places provide safe accommodation, community support and training to survivors of domestic abuse across Essex and Hertfordshire.
£10 Could give a family in refuge the basic essentials they need for their first night
£25 Could go towards a counselling session for a survivor of abuse
£50 Could give a family a safe room to stay for the night in refuge

Any support will be very much welcomed and appreciated!

Thank you

Ivona
