Congratulations Kelvyn, that's a fantastic achievement!
Women's Aid was life changing for me too. I joined a newly formed local group in Bexley in the mid 70s and we set up and ran two refuges. In supporting the women who contacted us, and in attempting to provide a safe and welcoming space for women and children who needed it, we learnt so much, especially about what we were capable of ourselves. It's probably what led me to go on to higher education as a mature student, and later into social work. I'm sure it can be the same with any group or organisation you get deeply involved with, especially when you've been personally touched by the issues they work on.
Very best wishes to you and your brother
