Farah Nazeer, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid:
We are devastated at the news of the death of our Ambassador Maddy Anholt, who passed away yesterday aged 35. Maddy worked closely with us as she wrote her book about unhealthy relationships, and her passion was to raise awareness of abuse amongst younger people, which she did by working with us on our Love Respect website and through her comedy and writing. Maddy was a creative, caring and determined woman, who gave her time freely to support us at Women’s Aid. She wanted to help so that other young women would not experience controlling relationships, and in her memory we will strive to continue this important work. Today our thoughts are with Maddy’s family, her husband Ben, and her one year old daughter Opal.
