Marcon raise £4500 for Simon Community

Marcon Fit Out have raised a fantastic £4500 to support Simon Community, Northern Irelands leading homeless charity.

Several members of the Marcon team took part in this year’s One Big Sleep Out at Stormont in Belfast to raise the funds.

We are humbled by the support from everyone and cannot thank all of those enough for their kind donations, helping us to support this wonderful charity and the work they do to help end homelessness.

On average around 1,000 households present as homelessness to the Housing Executive each month with over 40,000 sitting on social housing waiting lists for homes that may never come.  Sadly, these figures don’t even account for the 100,000 households estimated to be experiencing hidden homelessness here in Northern Ireland.

Every penny raised will go towards providing their services to those most vulnerable and includes Emergency & Permanent Accommodation Young People Support Services, health and well-being, accessing food and clothing and much more!

Thank you all so much from the Marcon team.
