Founder of MK Act recognised by Milton Keynes Rose

    Carole Loxton, MK Act’s founder, was recognised this week by being admitted to the MK Founders Pillar.

    Carole started the first women’s refuge in MK in her home 45 years ago.

    Now, MK Act has 32 members of staff, 20 volunteers and supports over 2000 people each year.

    Sue Burke, MK Act’s Chief Exec said, “I know that myself, trustees and wonderful team are currently holding the baton for MK Act and that is a privilege but we have taken it from Carole and all the amazing women before with the focus always being on supporting, empowering and making safe those who experience Domestic Abuse in MK.

    "This week is to say 'thank you' to Carol and to mark the massive impact that she had on the community of MK by founding MK Act and becoming a founder of MK.”

    Carol’s husband, Roger Loxton read a poem and Amanda Marlow, Mayor of MK, Debbie Brock, High Sheriff, and Rev Joyce Vassell were all in attendance and also said a few words at the ceremony this week to honour Carol.
