Waterford Rotary Night at the Dog's
Waterford Rotary Club supports Simon
to provide four new homes in Waterford
On 21st September 2013 Waterford Rotary held a Community Benefit night at Kilcohan Park Greyhound track in aid of South East Simon Community.
With 10 greyhound races on the night, a door prize raffle for €500, novelty human race, food and drink and loads of further prizes, a great night was had by young and .. eligable to vote!
The funds raised from the evening will be used to assist the redevelopment of four units of accommodation in Waterford City. The accommodation will be used to give people a home and with South East Simon Community, this means for life.
While providing a home for the homeless is vital, it is just the first step. The tenant and South East Simon Community then agree a support plan tailored to each individuals needs. South East Simon Community provide advice, advocacy and life skills coaching. They support the tenant to address any mental health or addiction issues and assist in the tenants integration into the local community. South East Simon work together with the tenant on every step of the journey from homelessness to independent living.
Many sincere thanks to everyone who bought a ticket, supported the night, sponsored a prize or a race.
Our sponsors for the night are listed in the image gallery above.
