For many years the Parents Association and students at Loreto have supported the charity Aoibhneas Women’s Refuge each year with fundraising by hosting a coffee morning and by collecting and distributing packs of essential items for the women and children using their services. The impact of the Covid 19 pandemic has been felt by many, but this year more than ever Aoibhneas is working hard to support the women and children experiencing domestic abuse endured during lockdown. Covid 19 also means that things are very different in how we carry out fundraising, and the needs that charities like Aoibhneas have. For this reason, the Parents Association has changed the approach to fundraising to ensure the help we are supplying is most relevant to the charity and the means in which it is carried out makes it simple for everyone to get involved, within Government guidelines.
This year, what is most important to Aoibhneas is to financially empower the women who use their services by giving them vouchers that can be used online so that they can individually decide what they want and need to buy for their children in the run up to Christmas. The concept while simple, carries significant meaning for women who have not had the financial freedom or means to exercise choice over what they buy for their family.
The Parents Association will be fundraising
by using GoFundMe cash donations to purchase individual vouchers for Aoibhneas families: Aoibhneas aim to give the each family a voucher to the value of €25. However, donations of any amount are welcome.
The Parents Association of Loreto take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
