THE President and Imam of York Mosque have visited the Mansion House to show support for the Lord Mayor's campaign against domestic violence.

They were backing a bid for York to be given White Ribbon status, which recognises cities and organisations' commitment to addressing social norms leading to violent and abusive behaviour against women and children.

The Lord Mayor, Coun Julie Gunnell, said she was delighted that the campaign was winning further support, and was grateful for the support of the mosque's Imam and President.

"This is something that is very close to my heart and it is pleasing to see more people supporting the campaign as the city looks to secure White Ribbon status," she added.
