The Charity

Charlotte will very kindly donate the whiskies to the club to support her chosen charity Refuge UK.

Refuge is the largest specialist domestic abuse organisation in the UK, and has led the campaign against domestic abuse since 1971, when they opened the world’s first safe house for women and children in 1971.

Back then, domestic abuse was seen as a “private matter”, to be dealt with behind closed doors. Society turned a blind eye.

Women and children escaping domestic abuse flocked to their doors because, for the first time, someone was saying it was wrong to beat your partner.

On any given day their services support thousands of survivors, helping them to overcome the physical, emotional, financial and logistical impacts of abuse and rebuild their lives — free from fear.

Tickets will go on sale on the 30th of July.
