Say no to Domestic Violence - HMAS Penguin

Say no to Domestic Violence - HMAS Penguin


Our friends at HMAS Penguin are passionate about fundraising initiatives that support their local communities. Located at Balmoral on the lower north shore, the HMAS Penguin team pledged to walk laps of Middle Head Oval in November 21 raising funds to support the Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter (NBWS).

Homelessness doesn’t discriminate, it can happen to anyone and NBWS is a safe haven, supporting homeless women so they can rebuild their lives, reclaim their independence and rejoin society. NBWS is a non-profit, communityfunded charitable organisation providing crisis accommodation, support, safety and services for women experiencing homelessness across Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

The ‘Say NO to Domestic Violence walk’ comprised of 52 laps – signifying the fact that at least one woman a week dies at the hands of a domestic partner. The walk’s ultimate purpose was to raise awareness of the impacts of domestic violence and its contributing role in women’s homelessness.

In support of the initiative, Australian Military Bank Area Manager Mark Ferguson joined in and contributed a donation to NBWS on behalf of the Bank.
