Mid West Simon Community would like to invite you to take part in our Annual Sleep Out both in Thomond Park and Virtually on Saturday 4th December 2021.
We are asking companies to raise €1,000, club seniors and third level students to raise €300 per person and join us in a night of solidarity for those who are most vulnerable in the Mid West region. We know it is a lot, but we will offer support to raise the money as part of your registration pack!
Participants will be given refreshments, a chance to socialise and network, and be given an opportunity to test their kicking skills in Thomond Park and also enjoy a tour of the stadium.
Participants can also sleep out at their gardens, offices or whereever they wish.
This event will run in complete accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.
Past Participants Testimonials
“I was delighted to be part of this project, raising awareness of the plight facing homeless people locally and to highlight the great work that the Mid West Simon Community undertakes”
– Stephen Keogh – Keating Connolly Sellors Solicitors
“It truly was a moving experience for both of us and certainly gave us the perspective to fully understand the issue. Thanks to you and your staff for looking after us on the night in question which as I say was a very memorable experience for all of us”
– Donal Creaton – Holmes O’Malley Sexton Solicitors
“It was an experience sleeping out in the tunnel that night. It was fun being with everyone of course but it was a real eye opener. The cold was harsh and I couldn’t help but think of anyone who has to face sleeping out night after night. It’s heart-breaking really to think of anyone having to sleep out – in the rain, in the cold – it must be so lonely!”
– Marie McSweeney – Northern Trust
“It was great to have this opportunity to be so close and personal with the grounds at Thomond Park but my lord was it freezing. You couldn’t help but think of the poor souls who sleep out in all weathers without the benefit of the thermal sleeping bags that we had! It is actually too scary to think about”
– Richard Maguire – Mazars
If you only take part in one charity event this year please let it be with us – your support will help us provide essential services for the homeless in our community who need it most.
