Galway Simon’s Virtual Sleep Out

What is a virtual sleep out?

We are calling on everyone – individuals, families, communities, businesses, schools, clubs and groups – from Galway, Mayo, Roscommon and beyond, to join us in giving up your bed for one night on Friday October 1st to help raise vital funds which will go directly towards helping those who are living with the risk of homelessness.

Whether you pitch a tent in the garden, bed down on the living room floor, or spend the night under the stars in the office car park, we are asking you to take part in solidarity with the individuals and families facing homelessness during this critical time of need.

What to expect on the night

Tune in to our virtual Sleep Out schedule on the night to connect with other participants and enjoy a jam-packed evening of entertainment and insightful content for all. 

Participants will have exclusive access to engaging & fun activities hosted by a number of special guests, as well as the opportunity to join several live-stream link ins throughout the night. Our media partner Galway Bay FM will also be covering the schedule live on air.

We guarantee everyone will come away from the event with a sense of pride at making a difference. Being virtual means that no matter where you are in the world, be that Moycullen, Westport, Castlerea or Shanghai, you can still get involved and enjoy this unique solidarity experience.
