Collette & Mary launch Dip & Donate Challenge for NW Simon

North West Simon Community are calling on you to join their annual Dip & Donate Challenge from June 18 to 21, ending on the longest day of the year to help raise vital funds to sustain their Early Intervention and Prevention Service.

For many of us, the longest day of the year (June 21) symbolises the start of summer a day where people take time to enjoy with friends and family and there has never been a more pressing time to stand together to help the most vulnerable in our society.

Delighted to share that World Champion Surfer, Marine Social Scientist, and Author of “50 things to do by the Sea” Dr. Easkey Britton from Donegal has endorsed North West Simon Community Dip & Donate campaign: “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.”
