I am delighted to have been asked to take part in this year’s #shinealight campaign with Focus Ireland. On Friday October 21st, I will be joining a group of Cork Business Owners and Leaders who will spend one night sleeping out at Cork Gaol to raise awareness and funds for homelessness in Ireland. When I was approached about this, I was admittedly a little nervous at the prospect of sleeping out on what could be a very cold and wet October night. When I read that stats that 1 in 3 homeless people are children, my mind was made up. As a mother of 2 small children, it really made me think about what it would be like for me and my children if we were homeless. This is a small thing that I can do to help those more unfortunate that I am.
If you would like to help me raise funds for this very important cause, please click on the link below to my fundraising page.
