Bathshack Golf Day raises over £10.5K for Women’s Aid!

Bathshack’s recent Charity Golf Day in support of Women’s Aid Federation NI and Women’s Aid Ireland – our chosen charity for 2023 – has raised a fantastic £10,506 for the domestic abuse organisation.

The event took place at Greenacres Golf Centre in Ballyclare on Friday, June 9 and is part of our ongoing fundraising efforts for Women’s Aid, which are taking place throughout the year. As part of this, we’re doing a range of in-house and public activities to help raise awareness of the charity and its work and to generate much needed financial support.

Women’s Aid is Northern Ireland’s lead voluntary organisation in tackling domestic abuse and provides vital support for women, children and young people who are affected by this. There are eight local Women’s Aid groups in total, all of which come under the Women’s Aid Federation umbrella.

The money raised by our Bathshack Charity Golf Day will subsequently support the charity’s ongoing work, funding on-the-ground support to directly help those impacted by domestic abuse. This includes giving a voice to survivors of domestic abuse, as well as delivering trauma support services, educating the public and monitoring and responding to government policies and legislation.

The monies raised will further help in highlighting the ongoing prevalence of domestic abuse, which makes up a fifth of all Northern Ireland’s crime. Indeed, in 2021/22, the PSNI received a phone call regarding a domestic abuse incident every 16 minutes – a shocking statistic.

More than 30 local businesses sponsored the Charity Golf Day, with various others making donations for raffle prizes. These included a four-ball voucher from Greenacres, whiskey and gin from Hinch Distillery, a meal voucher from The Rabbit Hotel and vouchers from Total Golf. There was also a hamper up for grabs from Centra, tickets to see the Ulster Orchestra perform and a £200 Bathshack voucher.

Our Distribution Sales Manager for Warehousing & Distribution, Declan McGirr, who was a key organiser of the Golf Day, had this to say afterwards: “Our final total of £10,506 is amazing and I’d like to thank all the teams who took part, along with our sponsors and the businesses who donated raffle prizes.

“Each one of them helped us reach this fantastic total and it was great to see everyone coming together to raise money for a very worthy charity, while also having fun on the day. We’d also, of course, like to thank our hosts, Greenacres Golf Centre, for their hospitality and for helping to make the Golf Day a success. I would also like to thank our Wellbeing Team for all their support and help before, during and after the event.”

Teeing off at Greenacres Golf Centre for Bathshack’s recent Charity Golf Day.

Teeing off at 12pm, a total of 15 teams comprising sponsors and Bathshack employees worked their way around the 18-hole course at Greenacres Golf Centre. They were treated to a few surprises along the way, including a ‘Beat the Pro’ challenge at hole six, the pro in question being Northern Irish golfing professional and coach, Bailey Wilson.

There was also a minibar at hole 10 to refresh the golfers on what was another sweltering summer’s day. The event then finished with an evening meal at Greenacres, followed by the raffle.

Women’s Aid is Bathshack’s chosen charity for 2023.

Sarah Mason, CEO of Women’s Aid Federation NI, said: “Women’s Aid Federation NI would like to express our sincerest thanks to all the team at Bathshack for raising such an incredible amount of vital funds to support our work to tackle domestic abuse across Northern Ireland – a serious issue which impacts far too many women, children and young people in our community. “As a company, Bathshack is setting a high example in acknowledging and committing to support major societal issues which affect Northern Ireland and by doing so, you are also raising awareness of the extent of domestic abuse, and for that we thank you.”
