Following the success of the spectacular Cirque Fashion Show last month, Causeway Women’s Aid have received a donation of £2500 to support women and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence.
In a surprise addition to the donation raised through the generosity of those who attended the Cirque Fashion show Cllr Stephanie Quigley and Cindy McKendry presented a beautiful piece of artwork by local artist Maria Mitchell.
The piece entitled “Tenderness” is exactly what Causeway Women’s Aid wish for all those who need to access our services. Speaking on behalf of Causeway Women’s Aid Sharon Burnett said: “We owe a big thank-you to Stephanie and Cindy for coordinating such an amazing event and to all those who attended for buying tickets and giving so much to the raffle on the night. The local businesses and designers who supported the event also went above and beyond anything that could have been expected. With this donation we will be able to respond to the needs of women and children in crisis and know how much of a difference this will make for which we are very grateful.”
The next opportunity to support the work of Women’s Aid is coming up soon with the Connection Theatre production of BLOOD BROTHERS the play showing on Friday 11th and Saturday 12 th November in Portrush Town Hall. The £10 tickets are available at 23 Abbey Street, Coleraine, through Facebook on Blood Brothers (the play) page and a limited number will be available on performance nights at the door.
