The Mid West Simon Sleep Out event is about showing solidarity with those who haven’t got a place to call home. Our goal is not to replicate their experience or pretend to be homeless. But by coming together for one night, and by giving up our usual comforts, we aim to raise awareness, and funds in support of individuals and families facing homelessness in the West during this critical time of need.

This Event is being held in Thomond Park, Limerick and Virtually and is controlled by Mid West Simon Simon Community (Registered Charity No. 17187).

Participant Entry

  1. Only registered Participants are eligible to take part in the Event.
  2. A personalised iDonate fundraising page will be generated for each Participant upon registration. Registered Participants will also receive helpful info, fundraising tips and ideas by email.

Health & Safety, Legal and Medical

  1. Registered Participants are responsible for organising their own fundraising activities. You must run all activities in line with all relevant laws and guidance, including Public Health guidelines regarding coronavirus (Covid-19).
  2. Participants are responsible for ensuring they are sufficiently fit and healthy to take part. If a participant is unsure of their physical ability to take part, they must seek medical advice from their General Practitioner. Although we are encouraging Participants to find an unusual place in their home or garden to sleep, all locations chosen by Participants must be suitable and safe i.e. ensure that locations chosen will not result in harm to either yourself or others participating with you.

Sponsorship Monies & Donations

You don’t need to take any action, your job is simply to spread the word as far and wide as possible about your fundraising goal.

Sponsorship cards are also available on request and any funds raised offline can be easily added to your fundraising page, here’s how.
