COPE Galway Business Sleep Out

Business leaders sleeping out to support Galway’s homeless

Galway business leaders giving hope

On Friday 6 December, business and community leaders from across Galway will spend a night on the streets of Galway city to raise funds and awareness for our homeless services as part of our 8th annual Business Sleep Out event.

When: Friday 6 December 2019
Time: 6pm to 6am
Where: Shop Street and Salthill Village

In 2018, 32 business leaders came together to spend a night on Shop Street and with the help of the Galway community, raised a spectacular €154,500, with 100% of the money raised going towards the support of our homeless services. This year we are looking to top that result and for the first time, have added an additional sleep out location in Salthill Village.
