COLERAINE board member Simon Magee and everyone involved with Sleep Out 2018 would like to thank members of the public for their generosity…
A massive thank you for your generosity over the past few weeks – thanks to you we have raised almost £12,000 – we’ve been blown away by people’s generosity- THANK YOU!
We are also greatful for the local papers, Facebook friends & Coleraine FC for the support & publicity they have given us and continue to do…please check them out to get updates on how the money will be used by Shelter NI & Inspire!
63 of us completed the Sleep Out on Friday night past, as you know the weather was grim and little sleep was had but it was an experience I’m glad I was a part of…the thought of staying out night after night is truly horrific and this has made me appreciate the hardship for those on our streets!! I was also very aware of my own mental battle, getting through one night, the thought of my bed and a warm shower were all I could focus on, but unfortunately for many that is a mere dream!
Thank you for your support, through messages, calls and financially to the two charities – it genuinely made the whole experience worthwhile.
