Vincent Butler, an expedition leader, archaeologist and photographer from county Kildare has recently published a book called “Sixty Photographs for Simon” with all proceeds going to the Simon Community.
His book is a collection of some of the stunning images he has taken during his expeditions around the globe over the past two decades, across the Arctic, Scandinavia, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and the Antarctic.
Each image is accompanied by the story behind it:
Franklin Expedition Graves in the Canadian Arctic; A Gentoo Penguin with her chicks on the Antarctic Peninsula; Traditional Andean Cottage, Peru and Saharan Sand Dunes, Morocco.
All proceeds from the sale of the book in hardback & full colour, with 76 pages priced at €20 will go to the Simon Community, to help with their work in preventing and resolving homelessness.
Vincent donated €8,000 to North West Simon Community to support their work locally.
In 2019 the local homeless charity supported 401 individuals in Sligo, Leitrim & Donegal.
Through our Outreach Work North West Simon Community aim to deliver sustainable long-term benefits that make a difference to people’s lives and positively impact on the communities they serve.
The charity supports those in most need in our local area, those facing eviction, those applying for local authority housing, those completing HAP housing application forms, assisting individuals with budgeting, advice and information and advocating on their behalf.
North West Simon Community also liaise with other services and work on a one to one with struggling individuals and families for as long as it takes to get them back on their feet.
The demand from families needing assistance in getting out of homelessness has increased and North West Simon Community work with each case in a holistic way, these aren’t necessarily people on the street, they are people struggling in their own homes, facing eviction or families who can’t find suitable accommodation.
The charity has accommodation for 31 people in Co. Donegal with supports provided.
The book is available in bookshops countrywide and on line @www.irishacademicpress.ie/product/sixty-photographs-for-simon/or order directly from Vincent, firstname.lastname@example.org, by buying this book you are making a difference to someone’s life.
