Raising awareness of a difficult topic

The pieces were created during the COVID lockdown, and designed to spruce up the walls of the charity’s shelters after a renovation.

The exhibit also features a quilt created by Lincolnshire quilters, the panels reflecting each contributor’s experience of the pandemic, which has been used to raise money for the charity over the last year.

The exhibition is situated in Chapter House, and entry is included as part of Lincoln Cathedral’s regular ticket price.

EDAN Lincs, short for End Domestic Abuse Now, provides support and assistance to anybody suffering from domestic abuse.
