North West Simon Community Dip and Donate 2022

Take Advantage of the Longest Day of the Year to Help Those at Risk of Homelessness in the North West Region

North West Simon Community Tea Day

North West Simon

Join North West Simon Community Dip & Donate Challenge from 17th – 21st June, ending on the longest day of the year, to help raise vital funds to sustain the Early Intervention and Homeless Prevention Service. 

For many of us, the Summer Solstice (June 21st) symbolises the start of summer, a day to enjoy with friends and family. When you’re homeless, you are more concerned with finding a roof over your head, which is why the funding is crucial for the vital work and services provided to prevent and resolve homelessness throughout Sligo, Donegal and Leitrim.

There has never been a more pressing time to stand together to help the most vulnerable in our society. The North West Simon Community are heavily reliant on donations from fundraising events and need your support now more than ever.   In 2021 the charity supported 414 individuals from 216 unique households that were comprised of 246 adults and 168 children. 

“Embrace the rush of endorphins as you enter the water and cherish the feel-good factor of knowing you’re helping prevent and resolve homelessness in your local Community”. The first 50 participants who sign up will be posted out a free Dip & Donate t shirt. Sign up on www.northwestsimon.ie or by contacting collette@northwestsimon.ie  If you can’t make it to the beach, you can always take a dip in a local lake or river, or even your back garden paddling pool! Create a Facebook Fundraiser simply by logging into your Facebook page, “Create Fundraiser” and click on “Charity” in the “Who are you raising money for” section and select North West Simon Community. 

Please don’t forget to share your photos and videos of your dip and tag North West Simon Community on all social media channels using #dipanddonate.  100% of donations raised will go directly to the charity. 

You can also raise money through the North West Simon Instagram; northwestsimoncommunity1 and a fundraiser has been created at the top of the page. Alternatively, a direct online donation can be made at www.northwestsimon.ie/donate adding “Dip & Donate” in the comment box.

If you require further information do not hesitate to contact;  collette@northwestsimon.ie in Donegal and aisling.mcsharry@northwestsimon.ie in Sligo and Leitrim.

Thanks in advance and happy dipping, “see you in the water”!
