We were delighted to support our charity partner, The Simon Community by attending their recent Gala Ball at Galgorm Resort & Spa.
A highlight of the evening for everyone who attended was when a former client courageously shared his story with the guests. He spoke about becoming homeless after being pensioned out of his job due to injury and following the breakdown of his marriage. He contemplated ending his own life, but with support from The Simon Community, he is now living in his own home and enjoying life with family & friends.
The event raised an amazing £12,000 for the charity and will go towards helping others just like Phil. The money will provide shelter and support to families, young people and those with complex needs or poor mental health and the right services to help them break their cycle of homelessness.
