A LADIES' lunch raised £1,100 to help support people affected by domestic abuse.

Trafford Domestic Abuse Services organised the lunch at Cresta Court Hotel, Altrincham on Saturday June 15.

It included a drama performed by MaD Theatre highlighting the effects of domestic abuse. Sam Fisher, TDAS CEO said: “We were delighted so many ladies supported the event and we were thrilled to showcase the MaD Theatre drama “Blackeyes and Cottage Pies”.

"The drama is performed in local secondary schools allowing us to engage young people creatively with the issue of domestic abuse before we deliver specific lessons on the topic.

"We also thank everyone involved for helping us to raise a fantastic £1,100. These funds will go to supporting this important domestic abuse prevention work”.
