18 St John Street’s Anna Warters spoke at the recent “Colour Me Safe” charity event in Bolton, to help raise awareness of domestic abuse.

The ‘Colour Me Safe’ event took place at Bolton Stadium on 11th May. The aim of the event is to raise awareness and money for two local charities, Endeavour Project and Backup.

18 St John Street’s Anna Warters joined several fellow inspirational speakers. These included Jill Caldwell, Chief Executive of Endeavour, Emily and Laura Leyland from Fresh Perspective and Maura Jackson Chief Executive of Backup.

‘Colour Me Safe’ was organised by Jenna Atkinson of Harrison Drury Solicitors.

Jenna is a “She Inspires Orange” champion advocate for domestic abuse prevention. She commented: “It feels brilliant to raise the money for local causes that do such amazing work for people in the local community.”

“It is vital to raise awareness of domestic abuse which is what the event is about – and bringing people together. It is amazing that so many thought it was worthwhile and that people have already come forward for help since the event took place.”
