Crime takes a hand in helping Victim Support to raise funds

Pauline Rowson with Witness Support StaffIn 2012 I was privileged to be asked to assist Victim Support in Portsmouth to help raise funds for Victim Support and Witness Service by donating a signed copy of the DI Andy Horton crime novel A KILLING COAST and two of my thrillers; IN COLD DAYLIGHT and IN FOR THE KILL. These were 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.

Sadly 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.

I was pleased to be able to help even though it was in small way.

Witness Service can be contacted on  0300 3321000.

And if you’ve been affected by crime and you need confidential support or information, call the Victim Support line for free on 08 08 16 89 111.
