Raising money for Women’s Aid and Respect, photographer Jono White has created Raffle Against Domestic Violence, recruiting loads of faves to donate prizes.
“No time in recent memory has highlighted the need for the home to be a place of safety,” a statement reads. “During this covid-19 pandemic, the UK saw a 20% rise in reported domestic abuse cases, as those who shelter from the threat on the outside face danger from others on the inside. When this is over and the country returns to normality, for many, that threat still remains.
The raffle against domestic violence aims to raise some money and much needed awareness for Women’s Aid and Respect, 2 charities whose mission is to bring an end to domestic abuse. 14 bands, brands and photographers have donated prizes for the cause, many of which are one off or rare items.
Donate £5 or more to be entered into the draw. 16 winners will be chosen at random on May 31st at 6pm. UK only.”
The prizes are…
- The 1975 debut vinyl with signed art card
- Tickets for you and a friend to go to any Alt-J headline show and meet the band
