Shine A Light 2023

Whether you took part in the sleep out, or made a donation to show your support, thank you for being part of Shine A Light 2023.

Thank you to all participants of Shine A Light 2023! Your incredible commitment and support made the sleep out an unforgettable event. Together, we have taken a significant step towards raising awareness and support for over 13,000 people experiencing homelessness. 

Although Shine A Light has concluded, your support doesn't have to end. You can still make a difference by donating to support vital homeless services. 

Together, with the support of Bord Gáis Energy, we are aiming to raise €1.2 million in 2023 to support in the fight to end homelessness. Your contribution can change lives.
