Happy New Year to all of you!
Thank you so much for your generosity. We are so happy that we can count on your support!
- Paul Murphy's thankful word following the Sleepout 2014 -
"Our annual Christmas sleepout held to raise funds for Drogheda Homeless Aid was a huge success and surpassed all expectations.
The amount of money collected was well up on last year, an indication of the support the organisation enjoys in Drogheda, South Louth and Mid-Louth.
We know that many people have suffered in the recession and that money was short, and of course there are many other charities calling for support - but the community made the extra effort to fill our collection buckets.
In one case a lady who had won a €25 voucher for Hurley's delicatessen donated it to our cause.
We thank all of our generous donors in the community and assure them the money will be put to good use in sustaining our hostel at North Strand and our resettlement service.
We also thank sincerely all those people who slept out on what must have been one of the coldest nights of the year. They came out in solidarity with us and the entire Drogheda Homeless Aid team thank you all for your support. Happy Christmas to all and a peaceful and prosperous New Year from North Strand.
Paul Murphy (chairperson)"
