‘Sleep Out for Simon’ in Longford tomorrow

Final preparations are under way for this year’s ‘Sleep Out for Simon’ in Longford.

Volunteers will gather in Connolly Barracks tomorrow night for the second annual event, last year it raised over €35,000 for homeless services in the county.

Anyone who hasn’t already collected a sponsorship card can still take part with registration taking place at 9pm.


Some food and entertainment will be provided before everyone settles down for the night, as organiser Noel Green explains.
