Whilst you are tucked up in bed, Celtech’s Managing Director – Darragh Fanning, will be sleeping on cardboard battling Ireland’s bitter cold winter weather with just a sleeping bag and a cup of soup to help prevent homelessness in Ireland.

Homelessness is becoming a major problem in Ireland with over 5,000 people homeless in Ireland.

1 in 4 of these are children. Focus Ireland aim to break the cycle of homelessness by giving people access to information, housing, childcare and a range of education services throughout Dublin, Cork, Kilkenny, Limerick, Sligo, Waterford, Clare and Wexford.

Darragh has signed up for ‘Shine a Light Night’ so he can play a part in helping Focus Ireland provide vital prevention services which help change people’s lives. Shine A Light is a fundraiser  where Business Leaders from various companies each raise €5,000 for Focus Ire’s prevention services. Shine A Light will take place in two locations – City Gaol, Co.Cork and Christchurch, Co. Dublin. Last year, over 200 business leaders raised over €1 million for Focus Ireland.

Along with Darragh, the staff in Celtech will be fundraising within the next four weeks in order to help raise funds and to shine the light on Homelessness.

 

 You can help prevent homelessness in Ireland today by sponsoring Darragh to take part in the sleep-out by visiting Darragh’s fundraising page here

 

Ends.
