Women in shelter situations as the result of domestic violence are benefitting from a joint initiative in Carrickfergus.

Downshire School’s Interact Club has collected ‘Handbags of Hope’ which have been donated to Women’s Aid.

These are recycled gently used handbags which have been filled full of necessities for women.

Brenda Leslie, from the Carrick branch of Women’s Aid, came to the sixth form assembly to receive the donations.
