Crime Author Pauline Rowson Helps Victim Support

Pauline Rowson with Witness Support StaffCrime author Pauline Rowson was at Crown House, Portsmouth to help raise funds for Victim Support and Witness Service in Portsmouth, England, by donating a signed copy of the latest DI Andy Horton crime novel A Killing Coast and two of her thrillers; In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill. These will be given as prizes in a fund raising pub quiz.

Victim Support is a national charity which provides free and confidential help to victims of crime, witnesses, their family, friends and anyone affected across England and Wales. They also speak out as a national voice for victims and witnesses and campaign for change. They are available to help any time after the crime has happened, whether it was yesterday, last week or several years ago.

Pauline Rowson says, 'I know from personal experience in my family that the trauma of being a victim of violent crime never goes away. It can remain as painful in thirty, forty and over fifty years later.'

Victim SupportPauline Rowson with Mary Waldron and Dawn McGee have offices throughout England and Wales and run the Witness Service in every criminal court. The charity is built on volunteers and needs to raise money in order to be able to operate. You can find out more about volunteering and donating on their website.

Pauline Rowson adds, 'I was pleased to be able to help even though it was in small way and look forward to learning more about this excellent service in the future.'

The Victim Supportline is on 0845 30 30 900.
