9:00am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
The Amnesty International Wharfedale Group raised almost £100 at a table top sale at Christchurch, Ilkley.
A number of people at the event (pictured) also signed an Amnesty International petition calling on the UK Government to address the endemic problem of fear and abuse for women and girls in Afghanistan.
The organisation says 87 per cent of women in Afghanistan have direct experience of physical violence.
