A Bromley woman has set up a concert to raise funds for Bromley Women’s Aid.

The Sisterhood Concert, will take place at The Michael Croft Theatre, Dulwich.

Angelique Franklin, 30, from Anerley Road, Bromley says the vital service is under threat from government cuts.

Miss Franklin said: “The purpose of the event is to raise funds, and awareness of the work Bromley Womens Aid do,

“The service is personal to me because it has helped me out in the past, there are women in the service who don’t have families to go to when they arrive.”

Bromley Women’s Aid provides support and refuge for women suffering from domestic violence, and attempts to find them new homes.

Speaking of her aims for the fundraiser, Miss Franklin said: “How much we raise depends on the impact we can have, anything less than £1,000 will go on days out for the children and the women affected.

“Anything more could go on furniture for their new homes, and other support.”

The Sisterhood Concert will be hosted in Dulwich on Friday and features an all-female line up with dancers, singers, comedians, spoken word artists and public speakers all performing.

Miss Franklin added: “People are becoming more aware of domestic violence and more women are seeking help.

“It’s difficult for them to seek help when services like Bromley Women’s Aid are facing cuts.”

Tickets will be available to buy on the door, or to buy tickets online or donate, visit www.sisterhooduk.com and select “tickets”.
