WOMEN who lost their lives due to domestic violence will be remembered next week in a special candlelight vigil at the Cave Gardens.

Organised by the Limestone Coast Family Violence Action Group and Soroptimist International Mount Gambier, the vigil is part of a national event to remember those who have died because of domestic violence.

Each year, friends and family throughout the community gather together in a short candle lighting ceremony where a minute of silence is held in remembrance for those who have lost their lives.
