Our dearest friends and family,
In lieu of wedding gifts, we have made the decision to ask for donations to two charities very close to our hearts, including Blackburn & Darwen District Without Abuse which runs The WISH Centre.
This organisation provides invaluable support to women and men who have suffered or are at risk of suffering domestic abuse in the Blackburn area, as well as many other services. The WISH Centre is a first point of contact for those who are experiencing domestic abuse and provides specialist support, accommodation, free legal advice and more. Your donation will go directly towards this work.
Your gift to us is appreciated,
Kate & James
