Colour North East
Lungs is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with local creatives to produce Colour North East, a community inspired colouring book designed for all ages. Featuring original artwork from a selection of artists from the North East area, proceeds from sales will be donated to the charity, Wearside Women in Need. The launch will consist of a day of colouring and other fun activities
Wearside Women in Need is the only provider of shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence in Sunderland. With the future of their funding uncertain, they may be forced to close their doors. This will make Sunderland the UK’s only major city without any domestic violence refuges for women.
Servicing over 350 women each year, WWiN also provides outreach and advocacy assistance, a 24-hour domestic violence helpline as well as running four shelters accommodating up to 173 women and 107 children at any given time.
