Rainbows for Refuge Wall Hanging

This rainbow wall hanging was designed in April 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. In the United Kingdom, lockdown saw calls to the National Domestic Abuse helpline increase by 49% and killings doubled. This helpline is run by Refuge, a charity supporting women and children who are experiencing domestic and sexual violence.

Rather than releasing this as a paid pattern, I have decided to keep it free and instead set up a JustGiving page to raise money for Refuge; there is absolutely no obligation to donate, but if you are able to spare a few pennies then you can do so by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rainbowsforrefuge
