Women’s Aid ABCLN is holding an online Quiz Night with Dobbins Inn, Carrickfergus as part of its ‘Make It Better’ fundraising week on Friday 22nd May. Starting at 7.30pm the quiz will be hosted live on Dobbins Inn Facebook page by Quiz Master Derek Fallis and will help raise funds for children affected by domestic abuse.
Women’s Aid ABCLN Fundraiser, Arlene Creighton says “Due to ongoing restrictions and social distancing we have taken the decision to move our fundraising online. This week we would have had skydives, ziplines, coffee mornings, quiz nights and sponsored walks all taking place to raise funds for our work with children.”
“Dobbin’s Inn supports us year on year for our Make It Better Appeal and we are delighted Derek and the team have taken up the challenge to host the quiz online and support us in this generous way.”
Arlene added “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.”
