Proud to support Refuge
We've done it - but we can do much more!
A big well done to everyone for helping us raise £10,000 for domestic violence charity Refuge - helping them grow by 30 per cent!
We think that's amazing! For evey dress sold from our Little Black Dress and Alesha Dixon Collections, we have changed lives for the better.
So a huge thank you - we couldn’t have done it without you!
The Refuge Charity
Refuge, opened the world’s first safe house in 1971, and supports nearly 5,000 women and children escaping domestic violence every single day.
Little Black Dress CEO Mark Evans said: “Refuge’s work focuses on empowering women and building self-esteem, a cause that compliments the Little Black Dress ethos perfectly.
We are committed to building a brand that 'gives something back' rather than one that simply sells dresses."
Sandra Horley CBE, chief executive of Refuge, said: “Refuge is enormously grateful to Little Black Dress for its generous donation of £10,000.
"£10,000 is the equivalent of 192 nights in a refuge for a woman and her children, where Refuge’s expert staff offer them the practical and emotional support they need to begin rebuilding their lives, free from fear.”
The money you’ve helped us raise is crucial. Infact, Little Black Dress has helped Refuge grow by more than 30% in 2017.
And we continue to raise valuable money - £1is donated from every LBD Collection and Alesha dress sold.
