Community, What's On

As the weekend of the big revamp of the Women’s Aid Refuge centre draws closer, Newry Junior Chamber are delighted to announce the backing of Crown Paints.

In just a few weeks’ time, Newry Junior Chamber will be given one weekend in which they will race against the clock to transform the current refuge centre. This centre provides refuge to women and children suffering emotional, mental, physical or sexual abuse within their home and is in much need of refurbishment.

Over the last few months members and friends of NJC have been hard at work raising funds for this appeal, taking part in the Newry Marathon, a successful bag pack in Sainsburys in July and securing donations from local businesses.Their efforts were given an enormous boost when Crown Paints agreed to provide all the paint needed for the project.

To play your part in this great cause we are appealing to members of the public for their help in one of two ways:

A donation box will be set up in the Quays Shopping Centre from now until Tuesday 28th August for anyone wishing to make a donation. This can be in the form of new bed clothes, kitchen utensils, cutlery, cups and plates or vouchers for our local stores that supply such items.

We are also on the lookout for painters to help us complete this task in the allotted time frame. So if you are a painter and would be willing to spare a few hours over the weekend 31st August – 2nd September the Newry Junior Chamber would love to hear from you.

If you would like to make a donation or feel you could contribute in any way, please contact one of their members: Stephen O’Hare on 028 3026 1272, Paddy Magee on 07896 609656, Paul Duffy on 07742 474912 or Martina Murtagh on 07921 220513 or email tina_murtagh25@hotmail.com
