Watch: Women's Refuge pop up shop to raise funds for Hastings safe house
An army of volunteers has helped make this year's Family VIP (Violence Intervention and Prevention) Services' Pop Up Shop possible, with all funds raised to go towards refurbishment of the Hastings Safe House.
The Hastings and Napier Women's Refuges are under the umbrella of the Family Violence Intervention & Prevention Charitable Trust (Family VIP Services) which supports Hawke's Bay families to live free from violence.
The shop, located at 234 Heretaunga Street West, Hastings ( by Grieves Jewellers in the Farmers block), has been up and running since Tuesday from 10am to 4pm. Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day it will be open and people are encouraged to not only find something for themselves but help a good cause in the process.
