Andy Jarrett, Fundraising Lead at The Nelson Trust said “We are delighted that the raffle at this super celebration of the role of women in our county raised £380. Thank you to everyone who donated such amazing prizes. This was also a fabulous opportunity for the audience to learn more about the support that we are offering to people in recovery and women with multiple and complex needs during these challenging times”.
