You are being encouraged to travel to Peterborough this weekend to support women and children who stay at the YWCA Crossroads Shelter.

The event is this Saturday, at Central Smith Creamery in Peterborough.

Communications Coordinator Miriam Lyall says the money raised will go into the organization.

Lyall says over 80 children stay at Crossroads with their moms, which is a 50 per cent increase from last year.
