  • Sponsored Walk

On Saturday 17 May 2014, we are asking you to pull your walking boots on and take a stroll with us to help raise funds for children and young people affected by Domestic Violence.  Through our work we are continually faced with the innocent victims of domestic abuse – children and young people who suffer many detrimental experiences. Young people living with domestic violence are living in crisis. Constant change, disruption and violence in a young person’s life can make school a real challenge and diminish their ability to engage in education. We are fundraising for the continuity of the Make It Better projects which provides services to thousands of children and young people across Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne & Newtownabbey (ABCLN).

Registration will be at 10.30am, the seven mile walk will start from Larne leisure centre walking along the coast to Carnfunock  Park and back again (optional). There will also be tea, coffee and scones provided for all your hard work.

  • Payroll Giving - working for a good cause

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will cost you 80p and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost 60p.  It's cheaper because its tax free - for example, a donation of £5.00 per month costs the basic rate tax payer£4.00.

Payroll Giving is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help us plan ahead more effectively. The donor's confidential information cannot be viewed, intercepted or altered.  Information given is confidential and will not be shared.
