Doing this sponsored challenge directly helps families at risk of homelessness.

North West Simon Community is calling on the people of Sligo/Leitrim and Donegal to join the annual sponsored Sleep Out on Friday 5th October. 

The event takes place every year to show solidarity with those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. By sleeping outside in Sligo or Letterkenny, people will raise much-needed funds for local beneficiaries of the NW Simon Community.

100% of funds raised will go directly towards supporting North West Simon’s homelessness prevention services in the North West.

You can sign up for the sleep out or you can organise a Sleep Out of your own with your club/work/school – just call Donegal Development Officer Colette Ferguson on 0870552478 or email

You can make a difference in your local community.

You can donate online if you wish to support their work:
