We were delighted to take part in this years’ Shine A Light charity event, organised by Focus Ireland who help families, young people and children at risk or affected by homelessness. A number of brave souls from Cogent Associates, along with over 1000 people across Ireland, slept out on Friday 18th October, to raise awareness and Shine a Light on homelessness.
This was a fundraising initiative that was kicked off with a series of Friday bake sales at Cogent, featuring a delicious array of home baked goods, including scones, brownies, sausage rolls and lemon drizzle cake, raising nearly €400. We have since received very generous donations from our colleagues, clients and supporters, which has helped us to raise an amazing €4,000.
We would like to thank everyone who donated and those who slept out. Not forgetting Focus Ireland and the volunteers, who do such great work to support people who are homeless.
