Show Your Colours

Over the weekend of 3rd, 4th and 5th of July we are asking you use, wear and put on your, club, county, parish, team, business, corporate, national colours and get your network of friends, family and colleagues to donate to your campaign and support the work of Focus Ireland and the families we work with.

Support Focus Ireland during the Covid 19 Crisis

Homelessness is for many the biggest social crisis in Ireland. Not only are there 9,330 people without a place they can call home, but during these unprecedented times it is even more challenging than before. With restrictions still in place in all our lives, be it travel, work, shopping, health and relaxation, we are asking you to show your colours over the weekend of 3rd, 4th and 5th of July.
Focus Ireland staff are working tirelessly to prevent the spread of Covid 19 in temporary accommodations and supporting each individual’s needs to stay safe during these times.

Please support Focus Ireland by taking part in the #ShowYourColours and fundraise.

We are asking everyone to take part in #ShowYourColours.
This summer will be bereft of colour, little or no inter county matches, nor rugby, nor soccer, no Tidy Towns competition, we will be in Phase 3 of the Reopening. Shops will be open, some people will be returning to work.
Our target is Corporate, Business, Retail, Hospitality, Individuals, Sports groups, organisations and the wider Community. We are asking everyone to wear, hang, display their colours, club, county, parish, company, etc. This can be by T Shirt, tie, dress, hair, shoes, flags, bunting, doors, be inventive and creative and #ShowYourColours

How do I fundraise?
