DETERMINED Stafford campaigners fighting to stamp out domestic violence against women will take their petition to Downing Street next week.
Stafford Soroptimists have been collecting signatures for the last few months in a bid to convince the Government to do more to stop the violence.
The petition calls for an end to sex for sale advertising in all its forms and ensure perpetrators of any violence against women are brought to justice.
The soroptimists began collecting signatures with members of Stafford Women’s Aid during a candlelit vigil in Market Square in November. Women’s Aid chief executive Dickie Chester-James and Mayor of Stafford Borough Angela Loughran were out in support.
And since then the response has rocketed with members of all other Soroptimist groups around the country, along with a number of other women’s organisations, rushing to sign the petition.
On March 6 five members of the Stafford Soroptimist group will travel to Downing Street with MP Jeremy Lefroy to hand over the petition.
