Topaz has agreed to provide fuel for the Simon Community’s vehicles in Dublin and Cork for the next two years.The donation is being made through the charity’s award winning ‘Food for Simon’ programme.
The Simon Community provides services to people at all stages of homelessness, enabling them to move to a place they can call home. Their aim is to address the underlying causes of homelessness and support people in moving back to regaining their independence. At the moment Dublin and Cork Simon have seven vehicles constantly but this will increase with the introduction of the Visiting Support Service in Dublin.
Paul Candon, marketing and corporate services director of Topaz, said the company was delighted to support Simon’s work. “The Simon Community does excellent work for people who for whatever reason find themselves homeless. We wanted to help the charity in a practical way and this initiative will keep Simon on the road for the next two years”.
