The Simon Community Northern Ireland has received another big pay out from construction company Northstone as part of its Safety Challenge fundraising initiative.
Northstone handed over a cheque for £188,428 to the homelessness charity, making a total of £369,000 donated so far.
The Northstone Group is part of CRH, Ireland’s largest company. It launched its Simon Safety Challenge in July 2007 as a way of further encouraging and raising awareness among its workforce to undertake their duties as safely as possible. In doing so the Simon Community NI benefited from the company’s contract sites and work locations remaining accident free.
The money donated from Northstone in 2008 enabled Simon Community to furnish a 15 bed temporary accommodation project.
The Safety Challenge operates throughout Ireland with local Simon Communities in the Republic of Ireland receiving significant support over the last two years. The monetary contribution from CRH to the Simon Communities around Ireland in the first two years of the CRH Simon Safety Challenge is 1.62 million euros.
