Dip at Dawn in aid of North West Simon

Dip at Dawn – Fri 21st June in aid of North West Simon Community
We are excited to announce the launch of our first ever Dip at Dawn event which is set to take place on Fri 21st of June at Rosses Point, beside the Sligo Yacht Club where participants will gather at 5.00am to greet the morning sun with a short yoga session on the beach followed by a dip in the sea in an effort to raise awareness and funds for those facing homelessness in Sligo, Leitrim & Donegal.
The event is being organised on the longest day of the year as an act of solidarity with the 10,000 people in emergency accommodation across the country and the many more hidden homeless. 
The Yoga Sun Salutation will be led by Tara Mc Evoy of Sligo Yoga Centre. It is also international yoga day! The longest day of the year symbolises the start of summer. A day where people take time to enjoy with friends and family, doing simple and everyday things that some may take for granted. When you’re homeless, you are forced to go without the simplest comforts. It can be lonely and relentless, you are living minute to minute and every day can seem like the longest day of the year.
If you want to make a difference by taking time out of your longest day to help somebody else on theirs, Dip at Dawn is the perfect way to do this.

If rising with the birds is not something that comes naturally to you, why not consider setting up an Everydayhero fundraising page and ask friends and family to sponsor your challenge.
Sincere thanks to Sligo Yoga Centre for coming on board and Markievicz Pharmacy, Holborn Hill for sponsorship.

Noel Sweeney Memoir

Noel Sweeney  memoir ‘Don’t Say you Wen’t Taul’ is a must read. Noels book is now available to buy online at and in all good books shops.  
All proceeds will be going to North West Simon Community and other homeless charities. To-date books sales have raised €10,000 which is a fantastic achievement.
Noel continues to be a great support to North West Simon Community following Two Pay Cheques Away success which raised almost €20,000 from when it was first launched in Dec 2015.
