HRH The Princess Royal will visit one of the region’s leading domestic abuse agencies next month.

Princess Anne will visit the headquarters of West Mercia Women’s Aid on Wednesday 15 January.

The visit will involve Jan Frances, Chief Executive of the organisation, welcoming the Princess, briefing her about the origins, work, growth and vision of West Mercia Women’s Aid as well as a tour of the offices and the chance for trustees, staff, volunteers, service users and invited guests to meet the Royal visitor.

The Princess will also meet Jocelyn Anderson, Chief Officer of West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre, and be presented to her staff and trustees, and hear all about the work of the Centre.

Jan Frances, Chief Executive of West Mercia Women’s Aid said:
“We are delighted to announce that HRH The Princess Royal will be visiting us in the new year.  Her visit will offer us an excellent platform to showcase our valuable work with survivors of domestic violence and abuse to an individual who so tirelessly supports charitable ventures. We are also delighted that Princess Anne will be meeting some of our service users, who continue to inspire us with their courage and determination every day. We are really looking forward to welcoming her.”

Jocelyn Anderson, Chief Officer of West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre, said:
“I am very pleased to welcome HRH the Princess Royal to meet the staff and volunteers of Herefordshire Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre in recognition of their exceptional work in supporting survivors of rape, sexual abuse and sexual violence.  It takes tremendous courage for survivors to come forward and talk about their experiences and our dedicated team are able to offer support towards healing and recovery.”
