Sports for Hope!

The Wellspring of Life Women’s Refuge aims to provide a safe, peaceful, loving

place of refuge to women and women with children who have been emotionally, physically or sexually abused in the privacy of their own homes.

We are making progress towards our goals;

  • To provide accommodation to ten families at a time

  • To provide food and clothing. Vegetables will be grown in the refuge garden

  • There will be a baby/child play area designed specifically to suit their needs

  • To facilitate transport and accompaniment to court hearings, solicitors, counselling and

  • social welfare services

  • A full program of courses and classes available to our residents

How can you help?

We invite you to participate in the Wellspring of Life Women’s Refuge ‘Sports for Hope’ month, which will run throughout August. If you or your family have any interest in sport or connections to any clubs, please consider organising an event to raise funds or set an individual challenge. It could be walking, running, cycling, hiking, climbing or canoeing, get creative and have fun!

You could hold a socially distanced hike up a mountain, early morning dip in the sea or simply set yourself a walking challenge. The possibilities are endless!

How to Start…

Your own fundraising event page can be set up quickly and easily via Facebook and the Wellspring of Life Women’s Refuge page. Simply click the ‘Fundraisers’ tab and ‘Create a Fundraiser/Raise money’. Facebook pays all the processing fees so 100% of the donation goes directly to where it is most needed.

Follow the Wellspring of Life Women’s Refuge on Instagram (@wellspringofliferefuge) and Facebook (thewellspringofliferefuge) to see all the activity throughout the month. Don’t forget to share videos or photos of your activity!
