Belfast International Airport Aelia Duty Free staff have taken part in training to become a safe place for anyone affected by domestic abuse and hosted a coffee morning to raise funds and awareness for Women’s Aid ABCLN.
Speaking at the coffee morning, Aelia Duty Free Manager Karl Taylor said “We are delighted to partner with Women’s Aid ABCLN as our charity of the year and become the first ‘Safe Place’ within Belfast International Airport. Our team have been trained to recognise and respond to domestic abuse and we have all made the personal pledged to never commit, condone or remain silent about domestic abuse.”
Women’s Aid ABCLN Communication and Engagement Manager, Arlene Creighton “With one in four women affected by domestic abuse in their life time we believe staying silent on this issue is not an option. We welcome Aelia Duty Free’s commitment and support, and look forward to working in partnership with them over the coming year.”
“Sixteen members of staff have taken part in Safe Place training and together with colleagues across Belfast International Airport, they have raised an incredible £640 for Women’s Aid ABCLN.”
Karl added “Supporting this local charity provides us with great motivation in knowing that our efforts will make a significant difference to women and children in the local community.”
