Trevi invites you to recognise an awesome Shero in your life

In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, Trevi is asking you to recognise and celebrate remarkable women in your life!

The charity describes a Shero as a female hero who deserves to be recognised and celebrated for social, economic, cultural and political achievements.

Trevi’s popular Shero campaign returns for a third year. It is an opportunity for people to pay it forward, shout out loud and celebrate the awesomeness of their much appreciated and loved Sheroes, plus raise funds to support women and their children affected by domestic abuse and violence.

Trevi is encouraging a small donation to the charity for nominations who will receive a personalised certificate, message and badge to wear with pride. A selection of unique merchandise is also available to purchase, including Shero t-shirts, tote bags and hoodies.

Carrie Tecza, Engagement Officer, says, ‘The campaign is designed for people to be able to recognise and shout about any women who make a difference in their life – from the smallest of things they may do to some of the fantastic work we see being done in our communities by women. We feel especially this year with the cost of living crisis; people have a unique opportunity to recognise those women who have gone above and beyond in their community to support others. This includes opening their home as a warm space, volunteering at a food bank or ensuring an elderly neighbour has enough food and heat. We want to hear about them all!

‘We believe that there are many special women out there this year who deserve mention!’

Examples of previous Sheroes included mums, nans, sisters, best friends, teachers, volunteers and even inspirational celebrities! This year Trevi hopes to smash last year’s nominations and aims to raise £5000 in donations. Alongside the many amazing nominations last year, there were several celebrity supporters, superstar TV presenter Stacey Dooley and social media influencer Rachael Hambleton, AKA Part-Time Working Mummy, who continues to support the charity with campaigns.

This year,Trevi staff and beneficiraies have recognised Plymouth’s Lord Mayor, Cllr. Sue Dann as their Shero for her work in raising vital funds for the charity.
Lord Mayor, Cllr. Sue Dann says, ‘Being nominated as a Trevi Shero is such an unexpected and very humbling award. As a person, a councillor and Lord Mayor, I find it so enjoyable and rewarding working with charities and volunteers who help people. Trevi work and support women and their families to make changes and create a future for themselves, it’s a joy to be part of the story.’

Trevi continues to work tirelessly to support women and children who are affected by domestic violence and abuse daily – providing safe and nurturing spaces for women and their families to heal, grow and thrive.

This year marks their 30th anniversary and a unique opportunity to celebrate the women and children whose lives we have helped transform over three decades.
From their humble beginnings Trevi has blossomed into a revered and well-respected charity, now supporting more than 700 vulnerable women in the city each year.
They are regarded as a leader in the fight to end violence against women and girls, and continue to affect change in how local communities work together towards making our towns and cities safer for women and girls.

Their focus remains on ensuring essential services are made available for women affected by domestic abuse and violence across Plymouth and beyond.
Vikki a Trevi Peer Mentor has been recognised as a 2023 Shero and says, ‘When I found out someone had nominated me for a Shero award it made me feel so appreciated, I’m really honoured to be a 2023 Shero. I’m going to nominate a friend of mine now and surprise her!’

This year’s campaign is supported by Plymouth based candle company Devon Wick. Craig Ryder, Managing Director says, ‘We’re supporting Trevi’s Shero campaign this year to celebrate women’s achievements. As a large number of our customers are women, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to support this campaign. We’ve previously raised money for Trevi, and we’ve come up with an idea to help again. This year we’ve got a limited edition wax melt with £1 per wax melt going to Trevi so they can continue to help and support women.’

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #EmbraceEquity.We can all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion.
Trevi Shero’s campaign continues to grow, celebrating women everywhere.
