On Monday 15th October, some of the staff at Castle Leslie Estate took part in Focus Ireland’s ‘Shine a Light Night’. Shine a Light Night is a truly touching event where people come together for one night every year to raise vital funds and to stand in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in Ireland today. Family homelessness has reached historic proportions with 2,777 children currently living in emergency accommodation in Ireland, often unable to get to school, rarely getting a home cooked meal and sinking into darkness.
The staff rolled out their sleeping bags and slept rough for the night raising a phenomenal €10,181.91 for Focus Ireland. Thank you so much to all those who supported them.
