POPULAR American band Bon Iver has selected Lancashire Women’s Centres one of its charity partners for its European Tour.

Lancashire Women’s Centres run a network of female only centres at sites in Blackburn, Accrington and Burnley.

The indie band are working with the charity as part of its ‘2abillion’ campaign which works to raise support and awareness around gender inequality, domestic and sexual abuse.

Liz Islam, head of business development at Lancashire Women’s Centres said: “We are delighted that the work of our local charity has been recognised internationally in this way.

“The support of Bon Iver will help us to raise both vital awareness and funds to support the work we do in our local communities.”

The band will be providing limited edition band merchandise to auction, promoting the work of the charity and encouraging fundraising support at their Blackpool Opera house concert on September 25.
