As part of RBK’s celebration of International Women’s Day on 8th March, the staff held a fundraising coffee morning in aid of Athlone based Esker House.
Esker House Women's Refuge and Domestic Abuse Support Service provides temporary safe accommodation for women and their children and provides support and information for women experiencing domestic abuse.
Presenting Valerie Dolan, Director, Esker House with a cheque for €1,000, David Gleeson, Managing Partner of RBK said “We are proud to support Esker House who are dedicated to providing invaluable support to women and their families experiencing domestic abuse. RBK are 60 years in business this year and this is a small part of us giving back to the community.”
Valerie Dolan added “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all at RBK first of all for your kind welcome and hospitality and for your more than generous donation and ongoing support. Our court clinic is held in Athlone District Court every Wednesday morning from 10am - 12:30pm where staff support women who may need court accompaniment and advocate on their behalf. Esker House operates a 24/7 support and information helpline and also provides an outreach support service.”
