Wall Of Silence At Ashton Gate

The Wall of Silence charity is visiting Ashton Gate for Bristol City’s home game with Bolton Wanderers tomorrow (3pm).

The charity return to BS3 with bucket collectors hoping to raise more much-needed cash to carry out support work with adult victims and survivors of child abuse.

At an earlier visit to Ashton Gate on December 11th when Bristol Rugby played Bedford they raised £500, which equates to the cost of a volunteer counsellor for six months or 24x one-hour sessions of supportive therapy.

With good fortune and the renowned spirit and generosity of City fans, they very much hope to exceed this amount today.

Approximately 50,500 children in the UK are known to be at risk of abuse, while one in 20 children have experienced sexual abuse.

Many of these will go on into adulthood experiencing complex post-traumatic stress disorder. It is these people who walk in to this charity looking for help.

Please give generously tomorrow.
