This was a tough story to write – the lovely Julia had been imprisoned by her boyfriend who tortured her for three days. She was left black and blue. But, despite what he put her through, Donna has come out the other side a stronger, happier person. Her best friend, Donna, never gave up on her and their friendship gave Julia the strength to rebuild her life. It’s one of those stories that, while traumatic, also shows you the very best in people. These women have been friends since they were at primary school. Julia was recently bridesmaid at Donna’s wedding. It really makes you celebrate how important friendships are, doesn’t it?
Their friendship is so lovely, in fact, that the girls won a competition in Woman’s Own, which saw them win £1000. A very fitting prize.
