8 o’ clock on a cold, rainy Friday evening the staff of Halpin’s Café met outside of Bank of Ireland to begin their sleepout in aid of Wicklow Simon Community.
The local community came out to support the cause, local businesses allowed collections to take place in the week running up to the sleepout, and Wicklow Print Solutions in Rathnew had also kindly donated two banners advertising the event. Francesco’s Diner also provided beverages and pizza to the staff on the night.
The staff had set a target of €1000 but exceeded their expectations by raising €2,171. All funds went towards the Wicklow Branch of The Simon Community of Kilmantin Hill.
Halpin’s wants to thank everyone who helped support their fundraiser.
