The Purple Willow Was Born
Different entities jointly introduced a crisis safe house, officially named The Purple Willow, to temporarily house young abuse victims. The springboard place of safety will be a place of rest and safety for abandoned, neglected and abused children.
How it came to life
The springboard safe house was officially named on May 6 at Reading Country Club. Its name was revealed at a charity golf day after corporates contributed generously, booking four-balls and sponsoring holes.
Organised by Ward 106 councillor Timothy Denny and committee members, the golf day was in aid of The Teddy Bear Clinic and Unchain Our Children. Proceeds will also go towards giving the new place of safety a facelift.
The First Purple Willow
