5 ways to support the Novas Christmas Sleep-Out

Every year, Novas holds an annual Christmas Sleep-Out, our biggest fundraising event of the year. There are many ways to get involved in the sleep-out and support our Christmas appeal. Funds raised this Christmas help us support homeless services throughout the Mid West. Here are a few of the ways you can support us.

1. Sleep Out

The biggest way to support the Christmas Sleep-Out is by taking part – by joining us on December 20th to sleep out for a single night, you will receive a sponsorship card to allow your friends and family to support your effort. Sponsorship cards from sleep-out participants are an important source of fundraising for the Christmas appeal. This year, we want as many people as possible to take part in the Sleep-Out in Limerick, Ennis or Thurles.

If you are interested in taking part, contact rachel.black@novas.ie to receive more info and your sponsorship card.

2. Donate Online

We understand that many people want to support the Sleep-Out but aren’t available to join us on December 20th, that’s why we have an online donation facility where anyone can support the sleep-out and Novas services in general.

Donations are welcome at www.novas.ie/donate

3. Sponsor a friend

Perhaps you know someone who is taking part in the Sleep-Out – a fantastic way to support the cause is by sponsoring them and helping them to achieve their fundraising targets.

4. Sponsor a hurler

This year, we are delighted to have the support of hurlers from three counties: Limerick, Clare and Tipperary. Will O’Donoghue, Podge Collins and Seamus Callanan will be taking part in the 3 Sleep-Out events, along with other members of their respective teams. You can support one of the hurlers by donating to their fundraising pages.

5. Show support on the night

The Sleep-Outs will be taking place in central locations in Limerick, Ennis and Thurles on December 20th. From 7pm, there will be music, carols and a team of volunteers with donation buckets. All are welcome to pop by on the evening to throw some change in the donation buckets and enjoy the music.

Bonus – Anything else!

All forms of support are more than welcome, whether you want to donate tea and biscuits to participate on the night or share our message on social media.
