A donation of $20,000 has been made towards tackling domestic violence in the city.

The Musicians Club gave the money to Staying Home, Leaving Violence which the has been supporting for more than four years.

“It is such an important organisation in the community that helps people in the darkest times and darkest hours and I couldn’t see a better cause to help out,” said club manager, Michael Boland said.

Staying Home, Leaving Violence coordinator Fiona Camilleri, was very thankful for the donation which would be put to good use.

“The Musos are like family here,” said Ms Camilleri. “I can’t thank them and clubs of Broken Hill enough.

“With the amount of ice and technology-facilitated violence, you don’t realise, it’s a scary world. With this money we can help more people and try to educate the youth of Broken Hill on the importance of healthy versus unhealthy relationships.”
