July 2017 - Donation from the Progressive Building Society Omagh

Omagh Women’s Aid were delighted to be chosen by their local branch of the Progressive Building Society to receive a fantastic £5000 donation.

Handing over the cheque, branch manager Amanda Wilson explained that she and the staff in the branch had heard about the life-saving services run by Omagh Women’s Aid and it struck a chord with her and her staff team. They wanted to make a donation that would make an impact and benefit people in the Omagh area.

Omagh Women’s Aid are, like many other organisations, being hit by cuts to budgets. Last year, Omagh Women’s Aid provided accommodation to 42 women and 29 children. A further 105 women and 58 children were supported in the community. The money from Progressive Building Society will go towards helping these women and children build a better future for themselves, free from violence and fear.
