Two sisters of a woman murdered by her partner in Montgomeryshire have raised over £1,000 for the Newtown-based Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre.

Sharron Rogers and Cheryl O'nions, who come from Yorkshire, ran the Asda Foundation Leeds 10k in the summer in memory of their sister, Tracy Cockrell, who was murdered by her partner near Machynlleth last year.

They raised £1,115 in her memory and have presented the cheque to the crisis centre to help people facing physical and mental abuse.

Sharron said "It was great to see, first hand, the valuable work MFCC carry out, including meeting some of the survivors they support and seeing how the money raised will impact on their recovery.  Tracy was a kind, caring person and would have been proud that the money raised was going to help people experiencing domestic abuse."

Jane Stephens, Team Leader at MFCC said “It was a privilege to meet Sharron, Cheryl and Janet, we can’t thank them enough for the fantastic amount raised for our organisation. We have created a new garden area at our female refuge in celebration of Tracy’s life, as suggested by Tracy’s family.

If you, or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse call Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre on 01686 629114 or the Live Fear Free Helpline on 080880 10800.
