Survivors picnic for abuse victims

Sharon McGovern was sexually abused by her stepdad for 13 years from the age of 4.

He was jailed nearly 6 years ago.

Now, after writing a book and becoming a fully trained counsellor, Sharon's organising a survivors picnic at Grays Beach in Thurrock next April, and hopes it'll help other victims of abuse.

She also wants to open a dedicated drop-in centre in future, staffed by professionals who themselves have been through similar experiences.

Sharon's holding a talk next month, on her life and her book, Afraid which details her abusive childhood past.

It's being held at Corringham Library, St John's Way on Wednesday October 6th, 2010 from 7.30pm.
