Speaking about the Event Maura McMahon Fundraising & Development Officer with Focus Ireland Midwest said, “I am delighted to be organising this Fashion and Wellbeing Fundraising event. I hope that ladies can come out in style and support this event, as well as enjoying a great evening of glamour, makeup and fashion. There will also be some retail therapy available on the evening with Stands from various retailers.”

Maura added, “There are now 3,494 children and 8,048 adults with a total of 11,542 individuals homeless in Ireland. In the Midwest there’s currently 99 families with 189 child dependents living in emergency accommodation. Our services in Limerick and Clare are currently working with 634 households, which includes 192 families with 384 child dependents.  Focus Ireland are providing 281 units of accommodation across Limerick and Clare.  Over 90 of which are long term secure family homes and with the remainder accommodating singles and mixed adult households.  It is with support from Fundraising events like this that Focus Ireland is able to continue their vital work in challenging homelessness and changing lives.”

Chloe Markham Style commented, “I am delighted to be partaking in the Focus Ireland Focus On You; Fashion, Style and Wellbeing event. Focus Ireland do great work in the Midwest in preventing, alleviating and eliminating homelessness and it is my belief that everyone should have a roof over their head. I will be showcasing Spring fashion from local boutiques in Newcastle West on the night. I am very passionate about shopping local for all your fashion needs. I look forward to assisting Focus Ireland in raising funds for their homeless services and hopefully we will raise a substantial amount.”

Focus Ireland in the Midwest works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. The charity is driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong. Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential. Wrong because it can be prevented, it can be solved but is allowed to continue and in doing so, undermines society.

Tickets for this event are €25 and can be purchased on www.Eventbrite.ie.  For any enquiries regarding this event, please contact Maura McMahon on 0876951883 or [email protected].
