Last Sunday morning family, friends and pets joined Phoebe Lott as she walked the last 2k of her 80km Challenge in aid of Women’s Aid.
Phoebe who was doing the walk in memory of her sister Nadine Lott, had set herself a target of €150 but it was quickly surpassed before she had even taken a step.
The Arklow girl has now raised over a staggering 16k after the 28 day challenge.
Sunday’s walk started and ended at Nadine’s mural which is located at the Arklow Leisure Centre.
Phoebe thanked everyone who had donated and all who walked with her including her pet Bella.
You can still donate by visiting Phoebe’s fundraiser for Women’s Aid
One in five women experience some form of domestic abuse in Ireland and Women’s Aid is here to listen, believe and support women every day on the 24hr National Freephone Helpline 1800 341 900 and through our one to one support services.
We can also link women in with local support services near where they live.Last year, we answered almost 20,000 calls from women from all across Ireland whose partners or exes were emotionally, physically, sexually and/or financially abusive.
Women also told us that their children were exposed to the abuse by their father.The 24hr National Helpline is a lifeline for women who need support. A safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to talk through what is happening at home or in relationships and get practical support and information.
