We received this message yesterday. It made our day so we thought we would share it to you.

"A post that I’m scared to share but want to. Every Wednesday night for several years I would begin planning my excuse for not going, then somehow Thursday morning, on autopilot, I would step off the train, walk to One in Four make my cup of tea and wait.

Years of flashbacks and body memories and having to hold it together so others aren’t uncomfortable, nightmares and whispers, and my safe space where I could let it all go. I never thought I would survive the pain and many times I didn’t want to, but each week I would promise Antoinette as I left that I would see her again.

One in Four helped me to find my voice. I felt heard, validated, never judged or questioned, always safe and like I mattered for the first time in my life. Each week I left my rawness behind those doors and picked up the pieces on the way home telling myself that I’m one step closer to being free.

I get to live my life, free from pain, shame and guilt that was never mine to own. I get to enjoy and love my life free from what happened to me, looking back I never thought that would have been possible. Antoinette held my secrets so I no longer had to and I’m forever grateful for the support that I received from One in Four throughout the legal process.

Antoinette is walking 10k before 10am for 10days to honour the journey survivors take and to fundraise in order to support others so that they can be heard and free from the pain that consumes every second of the day. Anything that you can contribute to this important fundraiser will make a huge difference xx"
