We are proud to announce that our very own Philip Gillivan, CBA President, will be taking part in the Focus Ireland, Shine a Light Night 2018 on behalf of the Cork Business Association.
Shine a Light Night is a truly touching event where the Business Community come together for one night to raise vital funds and to stand in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in Ireland today. Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. They offer individuals and families advice, support, education and housing to help people to have and keep a home. Focus Ireland and the CBA believe that everyone has a right to a place they can call home and Focus Ireland campaigns to address the causes of homelessness.
This year’s Shine a Light Night will take place on Friday 12th October on Spike Island. Over the coming weeks Philip will be fundraising for Focus Ireland with the hope of reaching his goal of €3000 for this very deserving organisation.
