Eamon McCay, founder and Managing Director of Frylite, is bravely opting to sleep out overnight in Strabane Co.Tyrone to raise both awareness and funds to tackle the issue of homelessness across Ireland.
Prompted by World Homeless Day on 10th October 2018, Eamon will spend the night of Saturday, 13th October on the streets of Strabane.
Eamon acknowledges that he is fortunate in being able to choose the temporary homelessness and understands that for others it is not a choice. Almost 10,000 people described themselves as homeless in Ireland this year. That includes men, women, couples and families. These are staggering -figures, but the most important message is that we can all help.
Eamon is working in partnership with a variety of charities including DePaul, a cross-border charity supporting some of the most marginalised individuals, couples and families experiencing homelessness. Their mission is to end homelessness and change the lives of those affected by it.
The Frylite Sleep Out is also just one part of a huge charity initiative designed to celebrate the company’s 30 years in business. Over the course of 12 months, colleagues are being encouraged to play their part in raising £30,000 to be donated to a range of nominated charities.
Eamon says “Frylite has always aimed to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Because we’re an all-Ireland business, we’ve found many ways to do this over the years and saw our 30 years in business as an even bigger opportunity to do more of the same. I personally am delighted to make this small gesture to help raise awareness of a nationwide issue.
“I would be very grateful if you can donate what you can to this most deserving of causes by visiting our Frylite GoFundMe Page – www.gofundme.com/frylite-celebrating-30years.”
Well done to all the staff at Frylite Strabane who raised a total of £588.00 at The Cricket & BBQ night held in Sion Mills Cricket Club
The team had a great night & all money raised will go towards ‘Raising £30,000 to celebrate 30 Years in Business’ for a variety of charities
Thank you all for your donations and well done
