Mid West Simon Community is calling on all households to join the Mid West Simon Staycation and camp out for the last weekend in August.

The Mid West Simon Staycation invites you to camp out in your garden, the balcony, or even the living room this Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29 and harness those holiday vibes. Treat the kids to one last hurrah by having a water fight, building a fort, going for a picnic, or grilling a BBQ. End your fun-filled day by sleeping under the stars and help teach your kids about those less fortunate than themselves while raising much-needed funds for the Mid West Simon Community vital life-saving services.

The Mid West Simon Community has been established since October 2006 and covers the counties of Clare, Limerick, and North Tipperary. They aim to support people through their journey out of homelessness by providing appropriate accommodation and care services, tailored to their individual needs.

They are a very important service that provides emergency accommodation for people who become homeless, they also help support people and help them keep their homes and they advocate for changes in social policy that can make a real impact on ending homelessness.

The Mid West Simon Community has initiated many events like this before, such as the annual Mid West Simon Community Sleep Out where participants and volunteers sleep out all night at Thomond Park to show their support and raise much needed funds.

The Mid-West Simon Staycation is a ticketed event, with each household being asked to pay either €20 or €25 to take part. All ticket sales will go directly towards people experiencing homelessness.

€20 could buy a personal care kit containing new socks and underwear, wipes, deodorant, body wash and tissues for someone staying in our Supported Temporary Accommodation in Limerick or Clare.

€25 could buy bedding to help keep someone warm at night in their home.

Those taking part are encouraged to photograph their Mid West Simon Staycation and share with us on social media by using the hashtag #SimonStaycation. The best picture will be announced and posted on the Mid West Simon’s social media channels the following week.

Manager Jackie Bonfield said, “We are really hoping people will support our staycation event. We are raising funds that will be used for frontline services in Limerick, services such as the food bank, school packs, emergency accommodation, long term housing, advocacy, and advice.”
