Helping Our Homeless - A Gift for Schools

Helping Our Homeless

I am hoping that you will consider contributing to our fund to help Midlands Simon provide vital services for our homeless.    

Midlands Simon Community provide two Emergency Accommodation Services, a Regional Support Service, a Housing with Support Service and an Out of Hours Service.  While the main priority of our work is to assist all our Service Users to move out of homelessness, we also work very closely to help them overcome the many other difficulties faced by those experiencing homelessness, such as loneliness, isolation, poverty, and health and welfare issues.  In short, it is our aim to help all our Service Users to rebuild their lives, and move out of homelessness into a permanent home.

Funds raised from the exciting initiative Sixty Photographs for Simon will help to provide essential supports to our Service Users during these uncertain times.

For every €20 raised through donations to this fund, the Simon Community will gift a copy of Vincent Butler’s captivating book ‘Sixty Photographs for Simon’ to a school.  The book contains 60 photographs including stunning landscape vistas, intimate cultural vignettes and captivating wildlife encounters.  Some 25 countries are represented in a broad geographical sweep from the Arctic to the Antarctic.  Information rich, the book is a valuable teaching resource brim-full of material for projects and classwork.  There are 4,016 schools countrywide and we are hoping to gift a copy to every single one of them.  Your donations will not only support the work of the Simon Community with the homeless in your area but also help our young scholars who have recently experienced much hardship, uncertainty and disruption due to the COVID crisis.  

Every Euro counts. No donation is too small! The Sahara Desert covers an area of around 3.5 million square miles. It began with a single grain of sand!

Keep safe and well.
