Lucy and RISE

Lucy and RISE

Every year, each Mooncup team member is given a share of the Mooncup funds to donate to a charity of their choice. Lucy, our Marketing Assistant, shares her choice here:

 

This month I’ve chosen to give my Team Giving donation to Rise Charity who are helping me to come to terms with some difficult experiences in my personal life.

 

RISE is a small independent Brighton-based charity that provide exceptional support to those affected by domestic abuse and violence. They offer practical help including crisis appointments, legal and financial advice, support with criminal and civil proceedings, counselling and support groups, refuge information and preventative education.

 

The support that the women at Rise have been giving me in my time of crisis has been nothing short of phenomenal. They have been there for me every step of the way, either face-to-face or on the other end of the phone, so I can begin to rebuild my life. I do not know how I would have managed all my crazy To-Do lists without them! Through it all they’ve helped me to tap into my inner strength and remind me of the importance of self-care. I will never forget the help that Rise has given me, and with their continued support I’m hopeful for brighter future for myself.

 

Thank you RISE, for the incredible support you give women and families in our community to live a life free from abuse.
