SLEEP OUT FOR SIMON
Words can't describe the excitement .....
€10,000 raised from Gill & her dads sleep out for Simon!
This money is going directly to a local Simon House that caters for women in need of shelter. We are looking at getting a new kitchen for the house where the women can learn to cook or simply make daily meals in comfort while they live here.
On the night myself & the gang of 28 volunteers raised another €4,047.46 from the good people on the streets of Galway that night & all the local bars who let us in!
All this money goes towards the overall funds raised! There were 2 other sleeps out happening in Galway that night one in Corinthians Rugby with the wonderful Sharon and a gang out in Athenry so funds are streaming in. Looks like we may have all raised over €20 k so far!
I was delighted with the support people literally running to me with cheques & cash & customers donating in the restaurant.
So many Local business owners came out in force behind us too which was gave us such a great feeling of community spirit.
I live by the wise words I once heard Richard Branson saying - If you are in a position to make a change and do something then you do something.
On behalf of myself Gill & Big Joe Senior
THANK YOU ALL
Go Raibh Mile Maith Agat
