Edwina Vaughan Award 2013
Atal y Fro is delighted to announce a fund raising event to mark UNITED NATIONS DAY for the ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN & GIRLS.
On Friday 29th November in Sully Sports & Social Club, we will be hosting a social evening including Bliss Dancers, music, dancing and a hog roast (with vegetarian option).
In addition to the fun side of the evening, we will be making the annual Edwina Vaughan Award, named after a great woman who encouraged adults to participate in Education and their local communities. The award is given to someone who makes a significant contribution to their community.
This year, we are making it extra special by posthumously awarding it to Cllr Margaret Alexander who inspired and encouraged so many people across the Vale of Glamorgan. Cllr Alexander was also a great champion and supporter of Atal y Fro and previously Vale Women’s Aid.
So do join us and make your contribution to helping families in the Vale of Glamorgan break the cycle of violence and abuse.

Bliss Dancers recently held their summer show on 13th and 14th July featuring performances of Street Dance and Modern Jazz to a packed audience and raised a fantastic £242 for Atal y Fro. All the money raised will be a great help to our service which enables us to help families break the cycle of domestic abuse.
