A candlelight vigil will be held to commemorate the Hunter’s victims of domestic violence on Wednesday night.

On average one woman or child loses their life to domestic violence every week.

Survivors of domestic and family abuse, frontline workers, and other allies will gather at the Old Tram Sheds in Foreshore Park at 5:30pm, for a vigil from 6pm to 7pm.

Attendees are asked to bring a candle, torch, or lantern.
