Irish Funds Fundraiser: Focus Ireland Shine a Light Night 2022 on Homelessness
Tuesday, 04 October 2022
Once again, this year a group of leaders from across the Irish funds and asset management industry are sleeping out on Friday, 14 October to shine a light on homelessness in Ireland and raise vital funds for Focus Ireland.
Right now, there are 1,366 families, including 3,028 children without a home. These families can spend up to two years in a one-bedroom room in emergency accommodation situation, which has a significant impact on mental health, self-esteem, and child development. However, homelessness would be much worse without the work of Focus Ireland. (Focus Ireland is one of the chosen charities of Irish Funds).
We have been so fortunate with the support we have had from industry groups and members over the last few years around the sleep out and hope we call on your support again.
We are also inviting member firms to be part of the experience and create a broader connection across the industry by considering hosting their own “Focus Ireland Sleep Out” at their premises or at home. If you would like to understand what is involved, please contact Kieran.McCarthy@focusireland.ie. Once you have your sleep out set up, please let us know by contacting Karen Gildea (firstname.lastname@example.org).
