Macgrath family in Whangarei brings out issue of violence against women

July 30, 2013 at 5:20 PM

As the killer of Patricia McGrath is sentenced to 2 years for manslaughter the Macgrath family is determined that "No amount of time served by this man [Philip Mahanga] in jail will be a reflection of our loss."

To honour the memory of their daughter, sister mother and friend the McGrath family rallied  support in Whangarei and marched for the cause to stop violence against women and to prompt women to leave violent relationships.

The late Patricia McGrath's brother John advises us: "Like people say, get help for your loved one. If you are in doubt about someone who could be doing something to a loved one, face them as a family.

"Offer support to the loved one, be there and be open."
