Ashfield businesses and residents are being urged to back a new project to help women and children who have fled domestic violence situations.

The initiative involves people filling a shoebox with essential items that will be donated to women who have fled abusive homes and did not have the chance to take many possessions with them.

The brainchild of Ashfield District Council’s domestic violence prevention officer, Katie Ellis, contributions have already been made by a number of local organisations and individuals.
