Newcastle Amnesty are putting on a night of music to help women who have experienced homelessness and/or domestic violence at Agosti Espresso, Darby St on Fri 27 March from 6pm.

All funds raised will go towards purchasing essential supplies packs for women moving into new accomodation. Many women are forced to leave everything behind and seek help from Nova for Women and Children to find new accomodation. It’s not easy to start again but these essential items packs can make a huge difference.
