CONGRATULATIONS to Surrey member Rita Freeman, who has won a national WI competition to design a Word Art or calligraphy poster publicising NFWI-Wales’ Not In My Name campaign, aimed at raising awareness of Violence Against Women (VAW).

Rita, who lives in Camberley, has been a WI member in Surrey for many years and stood down as President of Bagshot WI in November.

The Not In My Name campaign was established by NFWI-Wales and Welsh Assembly Member Joyce Watson in 2012. Men are encouraged to wear a white ribbon as a pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male VAW.

The winner’s name was announced on 25 November — White Ribbon Day.
