A group of women trekked more than 100 miles across Greece to raise awareness of domestic abuse and fundraise for Jewish Women’s Aid.
Labelled the ‘noisy pink ladies’ as they walked through the streets with pink JWA logo t-shirts, their trek saw them start off in Santorini, reach Naxos, before ending up in Mykonos.
Having so far raised £35,000, Jo Black, JWA trustee and member of the team, said: “My motivation obviously was to raise money and awareness for JWA whilst pushing ourselves physically. We felt we had the strength to achieve this while thinking about those women who couldn’t.”
The second time the event took place, they also took in Greece’s culture and landmark surroundings, while also trying their hand in some traditional Greek music.
JWA’s Chief Executive Naomi Dickson said “The generosity of the Jewish community never ceases to amaze me – in giving up their time to raise funds for victims of domestic abuse. We are so very grateful to all 16 women, for putting themselves through training and challenge, to support Jewish women and children affected by domestic violence and abuse, they are inspiring and what they have achieved will go on to help many people.”
