[Original article]

Eastenders actor Milly Zero plays the main role in a video made by the domestic violence charity Solace to launch its Safe This Christmas fundraising campaign.

The campaign aims to raise awareness and funding to provide crucial support and life-saving services to women experiencing violence, particularly in the run up to Christmas when Solace know they will have a huge rise in calls and demand for their services and support.

Milly plays ‘Amy’, a woman fleeing an abusive relationship. Amy is bombarded with increasingly desperate and threatening text messages from her partner, James. She finds solidarity and sisterhood in a revelling Christmas choir on a London bus on her way to a Solace refuge where she is finally able to spend Christmas safe and free from fear. 

More than 200 women and children will be spending Christmas in Solace’s 22 refuges across London. Leaving a relationship is often the most dangerous time for women and their families. Often, the moment an abuser’s power and control are threatened is when violence is most likely to escalate. Amy’s story serves as a reminder of the strength and resilience of survivors, and the importance of a safe space.
