A big well done to our team in Torfaen for organising a #149Challenge to raise awareness of domestic abuse as part of the White Ribbon UK campaign.

What is Challenge 149?

In 2018, 149 women were killed by men in the UK. More than half were killed by a former spouse or partner.The challenge was set by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent to encourage people to raise awareness among friends, colleagues and families by complete a challenge during the 16 days of the White Ribbon UK campaign that focuses on the number 149.

The Hafan Cymru Torfaen team accomplished:

  • 149 white ribbons tied around the bandstand (then removed)
  • 149 steps a few times around the bandstand
  • 149 welsh cakes baked
  • 149 steps around the park maze
