Make A Cuppa for Women’s Aid ABCLN

Women’s Aid ABCLN is inviting everyone to ‘Make A Cuppa’ during its ‘Make It Better Appeal Week’ and help raise funds for children affected by domestic abuse.

Arlene Creighton, Women’s Aid ABCLN Fundraiser says “Join us! Let’s ‘Make A Cuppa’ and help us raise funds for children affected by domestic abuse. Put the kettle on during our Make It Better Week from Monday 18th – 24th May and invite everyone to take part in a virtual coffee morning.”

“Due to ongoing restrictions and social distancing we have taken the decision to move our fundraising online. You can host a Facebook Live or Zoom on-line with family, friends and colleagues, or simply grab a quick brew.”

“This week would have been Women’s Aid ABCLN’s ‘Make It Better Appeal Week’ with skydives, ziplines, coffee mornings, quiz nights and sponsored walks all taking place to raise funds for our work with children.”

Arlene says “Often the biggest victims of domestic violence are the smallest. We know home is not always a safe place, and for many children lockdown will be a scary and uncertain time.”

“Right now we are working with 489 women and their 562 children who are living with domestic abuse. Women’s Aid ABCLN is also faced with the difficult position that our largest grant funding for our work with children ends in June.”

“We need your help, now more than ever to raise funds for work with children in our local community.”

“Please join us as we take our ‘Make It Better Appeal’ online and invite you to ‘Make A Cuppa’ with family, friends and work colleagues.”

“You can share your Make A Cuppa selfies with us using the hashtags #MakeACuppa #YouAreNotAlone and help us get the message out there for women that Women’s Aid ABCLN is here for them and help is available.”
