Event Management Students, IT Tralee, Sleep-In for Novas

BA Event Management Year 1 students from IT Tralee are participating in NOVAS’ Sleep-In this Christmas.

The students normally engage in a large variety of volunteering at festival and events throughout the year, as part of their course. However, due to Covid restrictions the students have decided to create their own socially distanced event this year, around the NOVAS Christmas Sleep-In Fundraiser. We are thrilled to have them on board!

The students are going to sleep out at home, in back gardens and living rooms all across the country, while raising money for this great cause over Christmas. Speaking about the sleep in Year 1 Event Management class rep. Elaine Doolan said,

“We are all really looking forward to participating in the NOVAS Christmas Sleep-In event this year, as we believe this a very worthwhile and most needed event to highlight homelessness issues and to fundraise for the homeless community. We appreciate the opportunity that NOVAS has afforded us partake in their Christmas Sleep-In, to help raise vital funds to help people without a permanent roof over their heads. As we are in the middle of a global pandemic and there are not a lot of events out there to volunteer at right now, we decided to create our own Covid compliant event.’
