On Friday 18th October Tom Rowan will be leaving the comfort of his home for one night to sleep-out on the grounds of the Law Society of Ireland for the Shine a Light Night, proudly supported by Bord Gáis Energy. Tom will be sleeping on cardboard battling Ireland’s cold weather with just a sleeping bag and a cup of soup.
Today there are over 10,000 people homeless in Ireland, 1 in 3 of them are children. Tom has signed up for the event, so he can play his part in helping Focus Ireland provide vital prevention services and change people’s lives.
Focus Ireland believe that homelessness can be ended and work 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.
You can help to end and prevent homelessness in Ireland today by sponsoring Tom to take part in the sleep-out. Tom has committed to donate €5,000 to Focus Ireland’s shine a light campaign.
