Sleep out for Cork Simon

Our Fundraising Committee here at Mahon Point is currently busy raising funds for Cork Simon Community.

Cork Simon was voted our preferred charity by staff members from our retail stores and management team.

Every year Cork Simon supports over 1,000 men and women at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

We will be donating 100% of funds raised to this most worthy cause at a time of the year when they will desperately need it.

Staff members from various stores, who are helping to raise funds, are pictured here with Tom Hennessey from Cork Simon Community

The following is being planned to help raise vital funds:

Sleep Out October 2nd

On Sunday 2nd October, “Sleep Out in aid of Cork Simon” will take place in our covered car park and already many staff members have signed up to take part which is fantastic!

We are getting the flasks of tea ready and pulling out the thermals as members of our staff prepare give up their bed for one night to support those facing homelessness and raise vital funds.
