International Woman’s Day & Inspirational Woman of the Year Award 2019

We had a wonderful time at our annual Breakfast and cannot thank our supporters enough, including our fantastic sponsor Barlcay’s, for coming along and raising an incredible £6241.16 for the Jersey Women’s Refuge. It is also our privilege to announce that Anna Goncalves won the 2019 Inspirational Woman of the Year Award.

Anna has been an inspiration to many people over the past 7 years for her extraordinary dedication to running marathons and selflessly raising over £100k for local Jersey charities including one very close to her heart, Headway. True to form Anna sprinted across the finishing line with the highest amount of nominations received! Here are some of her achievements so far:
    • Finalist in Pride of Britain Award in 2016
    • 7 marathons in 7 days
    • 100 miles in 24 hrs
    • 12 marathons in 1 year
    • 30 marathons in 30 days
    • Marathon de sables (in the Sahara which is over 250k across 6 day and has been said to be the toughest footrace on earth)
    • The Jungle Marathon (in Brazil over 200k across 7days which is said to be the world’s toughest endurance race passing through swaps and dangerous wildlife)

In September this year, Anna is planning to do the Grand to Grand race in America (in the Grand Canyon). In addition to the above challenges, Anna has also arranged many charity events over the years including (lunches, pool/poker tournaments/cakes sales etc.). If you would like to support Anna, she is happy to be contacted at madeiradiva@yahoo.com

Domestic Violence is any form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse which is used to gain power and control over the other person in an intimate relationship.

Women often say emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse as it leaves no visible scars, is difficult to prove and can be very damaging.

Children living with domestic violence can also suffer in a variety of ways; either by witnessing violence itself, by being used as emotional pawns or indirectly by the stress suffered by their mother.
