The staff of McCafferty’s Bar in Donegal Town took part in a sleep out in aid of the North West Simon Community, raising a total of €5131.30.
The sleep out was to help raise awareness of the hidden homelessness throughout the region.
The vision of the North West Simon Community is that Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo are places where all individuals and families have the appropriate support to access a home of their own and the support necessary to sustain their home.
Their mission is to develop and facilitate services to respond to the individual needs of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to advocate, educate and campaign for each person’s right to an appropriate home of their own and the services necessary to support this.
The event was organised by Barry Breslin along with participants from Donegal Town.
Barry and his team from McCafferty’s Donegal Town then presented a cheque to the North West Simon Community.
McCafferty’s Bar thanked everyone who got involved in the sleep out and donated.
“A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who participated and to those of you who kindly donated.”
