Retirement of GC Fergal Leonard - Donations

Retirement of GC Fergal Leonard - Donations
We did it
On 29th June 2020 we successfully raised £2,655 with 95 supporters in 14 days

I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target

Started on 15th June 2020 Londonderry, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Our friend & colleague, GC Fergal Leonard, retires from Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service on 1 July 2020 after 30 years dedicated service.

Fergal being the person he is, he has asked that instead of the usual leaving gifts, donations be made instead to Fermanagh Women's Aid.


Each year, Fermanagh Women's Aid support women and children who have experienced Domestic and Sexual Violence. They offer crisis intervention and tailored one to one support in Floating Support and Children’s Services, Refuge Accommodation for women and children who must leave their homes in an emergency, Personal Development Programmes and Peer Support and facilitating Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness in the community; so that every aspect of each family is supported in the way that is right for them. 

Fermanagh Women’s Aid is currently supporting over 100 families in Co. Fermanagh who are experiencing Domestic Violence in this current health crisis and lockdown. For these families, staying at home is not safe, but each woman and child is actively safety planning with the support of Fermanagh Women’s Aid. The organisation is still open, and staff are preparing for the expected increase in referrals as the weeks go on. 

Our donations will help Women’s Aid to provide tailored safety and support interventions for women and children at a time when they need it the most. 

Thank you.
