A Mobo award winner and ‘Queen of Gospel’ is to sing her heart out at a free event in Alexandra Palace to encourage more men to become ambassadors to end violence against women and girls.

Lurine Cato is set to perform in the Londesborough room of Alexandra Palace on Thursday from 5.30pm-7pm to mark the launch of Haringey’s White Ribbon.

The campaign aims to recruit male ambassadors by November to carry out community outreach work in the borough to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG) and provide guidance to those who may be exposed to difficult situations.

It also offers organisations and the community an opportunity to come together to start developing a coordinated response to tackling violence.

Cllr Eugene Ayisi, cabinet member for communities at Haringey Council, said: “We are determined to become a borough that does not commit, condone, or remain silent about VAWG, and all members of our community – including men and boys – have a part to play.

“Haringey White Ribbon underlines our commitment to supporting the international White Ribbon mission to tackle VAWG and support those affected by it.”

The council is working towards achieving the White Ribbon Local Authority Award.
