A Portrush woman is taking the plunge and swimming 14 miles in 14 days in both pool and open water in aid of Women's Aid NI.
Women's Aid is a voluntary organisation in Northern Ireland addressing domestic and sexual violence and providing services for women and children.
Cara Hunter who is also a local MLA said that having witnessed firsthand the incredible support Women's Aid staff provide vulnerable victims and survivors, she has seen how necessary this resource is for so many.
Her GoFundMe page reads " As we approach a new year, it’s important to remind women and girls across the north-facing emotional, psychological, mental or physical abuse that there are safe spaces for them to talk about their abuse, ask for guidance, support and seek counselling."
100% of donations will be sent directly to Women’s Aid NI to support vulnerable women and children impacted by abuse and in need of shelter. Click HERE To donate.
