The wonderful Cillian Lawlor will run 100k in November for Wexford Rape Crisis.
Cillian and his friends decided to organise a challenge where they would run 100 kilometres over the month of November and raise money for good causes. Luckily for us, Cillian chose Wexford Rape Crisis as the recipient for his fundraising efforts.
The lovely Clara O’Connor (@oconnorclara on Instagram) of Swing&Spin has created and organised an event in aid of Wexford Rape Crisis.
Clara came up with the idea of 300,000 Steps in 30 Days as a way to get people out and exercising during the second national lockdown, and kindly decided that Wexford Rape Crisis would be the recipients of any donations she received during the month.
Clara’s challenge starts today and you can donate here.
Last night, our manager Clare appeared on Facebook Live in an interview with Samantha Kelly (@tweetinggoddess) where they discussed what Wexford Rape Crisis is, who we help, what we do and how people can help support us.
With only three weeks to go until we can finally move into our new Maudlintown premises, we have been lucky enough to venture in to see the progress being made by Anthony Neville Homes and our foreman, John Roche.
As our opening day draws ever closer, we still need to raise the vital funds to furnish and decorate the entire building. We are relying on the generosity of the Wexford people to complete this.
The WR&SASS facilitated a creative art group with local artist Helen McLean (helenmcleanart.com) with clients of the WR&SASS. This amazing mosaic is now complete and will be hung on the wall of the centre. It encompasses a variety of creative materials and signifies the journey of some of the clients of the centre.
‘We comply with the Governance code for community, voluntary and charitable organisations in Ireland. We reviewed our organisation’s compliance with the principles in the Code. We based this review on an assessment of our organisational practice against the recommended actions for each principle. Our review sets out actions and completion dates for any issues that the assessment identifies need to be addressed’.
WR&SASS will be selling tickets for a Raffle at Tesco’s, on Thursday, 25th April 2013 (10am – 6pm) to raise funds for the Centre. Great prizes to be won, kindly donated by local businesses.
