The Radio Nova ‘Help Our Homeless’ Radiothon will take place on February 28th and March 1st
Irish actor Simon Delaney has teamed up with Radio Nova to help promote Radio NOVA’s 2018 ‘Help Our Homeless Radiothon’ in aid of Focus Ireland.
The two-day charity event will see the Dublin station turn over its airwaves to raise vital funds from donations from the public and local businesses.
Last year Focus Ireland supported over 700 households to move out of homelessness. However, the overall annual government figures for 2017 show a 17% increase in family homelessness.There was also a shocking 23% increase in the number of children homeless during this same period.
The latest figures show that 8,587 men, women and children are homeless.
Nova CEO Kevin Branigan said, “Over the last 3 years the Nova listeners have raised over €130,000.”
A host of celebrities have offered their support to the charity event including, professional snooker player Ken Doherty, TV3 Presenter Glenda Gilson and Rugby Pundit Brent Pope.
Radio Nova and Focus Ireland are now calling on the public to support the ‘The Help Our Homeless Radiothon’ tomorrow and Thursday.
