Local women’s charity, Trevi, is delighted to extend its deepest thanks to the generous sponsors who have played a pivotal role in the success of their ‘Show Violence Against Women and Girls the Red Card’ campaign. Their support has allowed the charity to amplify its important message, reach a wider audience, and promote impactful change in the fight against gender-based violence.

A special thanks goes to Devon & Plymouth Chamber, who brought together 16 organisations and businesses to support the campaign.

Local support has come from Devon & Plymouth Chamber, Acronyms, Sir Fix-a-Lock, Rowse Ltd, Woollcombe Yonge, YGS Landscapes, WTWS, GA, Devon County Council, City College, Porteous Groundworks, Sound Financial, Nuffield Health, Mercury Construction, Azets and Big Friendly Giants UK Group LTD.

These companies have shown exceptional commitment to the campaign, providing not just financial backing but also helping to spread awareness and encouraging community involvement. Their contributions have been key in enabling Trevi to launch this campaign, which aims to educate, advocate, and bring an end to violence against women and girls.

The ‘Show Violence Against Women and Girls the Red Card’ campaign has been met with overwhelming support and engagement from the community. Highlights include:

  • Increased public awareness and conversation through social media.
  • Distribution of informative materials that educate on recognising, preventing, and addressing violence against women and girls
  • Expanded our educational programs to schools and local communities
  • Growing collaboration with local organisations to signpost support services and resources for needy women

Hayley Everett, Trevi Head of Fundraising and Communications, says, ‘We are immensely grateful to our sponsors for their unwavering support. Their generosity and dedication are vital in helping us combat violence against women and girls. Together, we are creating safer communities and empowering individuals with the knowledge and resources they need to stand against violence.’

Stuart Elford, Chief Executive of Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, said: ‘The Chamber is proud to support the vital work of Trevi and Plymouth Argyle in addressing the ongoing threat of domestic violence against women and girls.

‘With the upcoming European Football Championship taking place in Germany, we recognise the potential for an increase in reports of abuse and are committed to doing our part to prevent it.

‘The 'Show Violence Against Women and Girls the Red Card' campaign is a powerful initiative that aligns with our values, and we are honoured to be a part of it. We have shared this campaign with all our members and encouraged them to join us in sponsoring this worthy cause.

‘Together, we can make a difference and send a strong message that violence against women and girls is never acceptable.’

This campaign is part of Trevi’s larger initiative, ‘ENOUGH’, which launched city-wide last year and is still ongoing. Trevi remains dedicated to advocating for the rights and safety of women and girls. With the continued support of their sponsors, partners, and the community, they are confident in their ability to make a lasting impact and drive meaningful change.

Trevi invites everyone to join them in this critical campaign. Whether through conversations in their communities, volunteering, donating, or spreading the word, every action counts in the fight against gender-based violence.
