Omagh Women’s Aid popped into Asda Omagh back in October, to share info on their services and invite donations of food and other items.
A big thank you to all those who took part or donated!
Allison Forbes, Omagh Women’s Aid Chairperson, said “The event was an overwhelming success and Omagh Women’s Aid would like to take this opportunity to thank Asda for their involvement, all the volunteers who gave up their time and of course, the community themselves who donated in their hundreds.”
So what was it all in aid of? Unfortunately, the need for emergency food and supplies has increased with those affected by domestic abuse in the Omagh area. Therefore all the donated items will go directly to those women and children in need. With domestic abuse affecting 1 in 4 women at some point in their lives, Omagh Women’s Aid are ready to listen, help and support.
