Sometimes we don’t realise how lucky we are and we tend to take alot of things for granted that others may not have.  That’s why Global Home Improvements decided to give something back by getting involved in raising much needed funds for Focus Ireland.

Homeless levels in Ireland are at an all-time high and much assistance is needed.  Focus Ireland services across the country provide support to over 12,500 people including those needing support to avoid becoming homeless.   The Shine a Light Night is an event where the business community come together for one night to raise vital funds and stand in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in Ireland today.   Global Home Improvements Managing Director Barry Shevlin participated in the event by sleeping out last October with others at Christchurch in Dublin. 

With much support and encouragement from staff, suppliers, friends and family almost €6,000 was raised.  The proceeds were gratefully received by the team in Focus Ireland. 

‘Thank you so much again for the fantastic efforts from all the team at Global Home Improvements who supported the fundraising campaign for Barry's sleep-out. Great work to exceed the target’.  Aoife Cooney, Focus Ireland.

The Global Home Improvements team were delighted to be part of this initiative and hope to continue in their efforts to raise more funds in the future for this worthy cause.
