The Chairmans Lady Charity

My chosen charity until September of this year, is The Hen House, which comes under the umbrella of Batchley Support Group. This group for women, meet every Wednesday morning and provides support wherever and whenever it is needed.

The group meet for coffee and cake, and every week have a different craft, an event or a challenge. The main aim of the group however, is to support women from very different backgrounds; many experience mental health difficulties, often domestic violence, but all too often just simple loneliness, isolation or bereavement. Through support, friendship and understanding, we empower women to strive towards being valued in society, to feel more confident about themselves and to give them chances and skills.

The group is free of charge, so to ensure no barriers to those who join us, but as you can imagine, the craft and materials for such a large and growing group of ladies, is costly to provide.

Any funding we raise will enable the group to grow and offer more women the opportunities to a fulfilled life, often moving on to work and enabling them to feel fabulous about themselves.
