Veezu (who operate in Swindon) have donated £1,000 to Women’s Aid Federation of England, to support their life-saving work, including their ‘Come Together to End Domestic Abuse’ campaign.

Women’s Aid is a national charity, that is working to end violence against women and girls.

The charity have just under 170 local domestic abuse organisations which provide refuges, helplines and domestic abuse services in local communities across the country.

Women's Aid also carry out research, training and campaigns with aims of building a world where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.

The Come Together to End Domestic Abuse campaign is Women’s Aid 50th birthday campaign - which will be celebrated in 2024.

Veezu are a leading taxi and private hire technology platform. Veezu’s regional hub in the South West stepped in to donate to the cause through its new community support programme ‘Funded by Veezu’.

The programme is a way in which local not-for-profit initiatives can apply for grants between £500 - £1000.

Jack Price, Regional Director at Veezu, said: “Driver partners operate in the heart of their communities and often hear first-hand the difficulties people face. We wanted to give something back to those in need in our local area."

Cordelia Lodge, Fundraising Manager at Women’s Aid, said: “We are so grateful to Veezu for their kind donation towards our new campaign. They have not only contributed vital funds which will help us continue our lifesaving services, but their support also helps raise crucial awareness of our work and the movement to end violence against women."
