Liz Perry from the Women's Refuge on West Herts Drivetime
Liz Perry, the manager of the St Albans and Hertsmere Women's Refuge, joined us on the West Herts Drivetime show this afternoon to discuss their latest fundraising project in Iceland.
Four of the charity's directors and their friends are currently on a week long trek in Iceland. They hope to raise up to £9,000 for the charity which offers emergency refuge for women and children suffering from domestic abuse.
The refuge is an independent local charity which accommodates up to 22 families and offers victims practical and emotional support and advice. Liz expressed the importance allowing victims to make an informed choice whilst respecting the individual's privacy.
