Bit O’ Red Team Up With Sligo Christmas Homeless Appeal

The club has teamed up with The Sligo Homeless Appeal which is fundraising on behalf of Focus Ireland Sligo and Shalomar men’s shelter and Sligo Social Services Homeless Department.

We will be helping out by offering our Showgrounds office and our Christmas Shop at Barton Smith, Hyde Bridge Sligo as drop off points, where we invite people to donate some items in aid of the Sligo Homeless Appreal 2018. 

The items which are needed are long life foods, tinned food, pasta, noodle pots and all other similar items.

Essential items such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste/brushes, hair brushes and body wash items for personal hygiene.

Larger size jumpers or T-shirts are helpful as these can fit all different sizes. Winter hats, gloves and socks are also essential, especially at this time of year. The appeal will cater for both males & females so ladies essential items are also required as well as packets of biscuits or sweets which will be included as “treat items” for Christmas.

The club would like to stress the importance of this appeal and we urge our fantastic support base to get behind it and donate whatever they can, big or small. 

Anyone who donates items in our Christmas Shop will be automatically entered into a draw to win a Sligo Rovers home jersey. 

Office hours at The Showgrounds are Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 5pm, with our Christmas Shop at Barton Smiths open from 9.30am-6pm daily. 

We thank you in advance for your fantastic support.
