International Women’s Day…..and more

To celebrate International Women’s Day we held a coffee morning, which was open to all.

Staff members Denise and Jodie volunteered hours of their own time baking a huge selection of delicious goodies to ensure that there was something to suit all tastes on the day. Video available on our Facebook page Wigtownshire Women’s Aid | Stranraer | Facebook.

Total raised on the day was just under £200, thank you to everyone who came along and supported us.

Thursday 9th brought us a lovely surprise from a group of young people from Stranraer Academy who recently participated in the YPI and wanted to continue to support our organisation. To highlight the issue of domestic abuse and celebrate International Women’s Day, 6 young people organised a baking sale which raised over £90 with all proceeds being donated to us. How amazing is that? Thanks to Mr Dornan who came to the office with the donation.

Today, we received a fantastic donation of £500 from Wigtown Community Shop. The shop raises funds through sales in the shop and proceeds are divided between local groups and organisations based on an application basis.

All funds raised or donated will be used to support women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
