March is Welsh Cakes for Welsh Women’s Aid month! Violence against women is not inevitable. Join us and our Campaign Champion cook, food writer and presenter Beca Lyne-Pirkis to help create a Wales that’s free from abuse by supporting our Welsh Cakes for Welsh Women’s Aid campaign. You can host your cake sale on International Women’s Day, St David’s Day, Mother’s Day or any day you choose!
Sign up to host a Welsh Cakes event – then bake, buy, or ask for donations of your favourite cakes and raise funds for Welsh Women’s Aid. Violence against women is everybody’s business, and your cake sale is a great way to talk with others about other ways you can contribute to ending violence against women.
Beca says: “It’s shocking to me that violence against women remains so prevalent in our communities. By supporting the Welsh Cakes for Welsh Women’s Aid campaign and talking about how we can work together to end violence against women in our communities, we can make a difference. I’m calling on people across Wales to sign up to hold Welsh Cakes for Welsh Women’s Aid events during March.”
Please note that we have unfortunately had to cancel the Mansion House Coffee Morning to mark International Women’s Day on 10 March 2020.

Download additional campaign materials below – printed materials can also be ordered on sign up. ‘Friends and family’ focused leaflets sharing tips on how to best support individuals affected by domestic abuse are also available in printed format.
With local lockdowns being brought into more Welsh areas this weekend, we know that many survivors will be anxious about what this means for support. -Specialist services are still operating -@LiveFearFree is still offering 24/7 support -Help is available.
