On Tuesday, March 5 at 7pm, ODEON Point Square will screen Robbie Walsh’s film ‘Eden’ in aid of the Dublin Simon Community.
All of the proceeds and donations from the screening will go to the services and support that Dublin Simon Community offer people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath.
‘Eden’ follows Adam throughout a day in his life living on the streets of Dublin, a man who has been left homeless in the wake of the Irish financial crisis.

A new initiative by Galway Simon Community called “Supper For Simon” is inviting people to host a Come Dine With Me-style dinner party to raise vital funds for their services.
The idea is simple; gather your friends, get cooking and ask guests to donate what they would have spent on a meal out in support of those experiencing homelessness in our community.
The meal can be whatever you make it – a candle-lit evening in the comfort of your own home with a few close friends; a potluck party with colleagues at the office; or a garden barbecue with neighbours.
To host your Supper, visit here to sign up and unlock your free toolkit which includes invites, recipes created by the Supper For Simon chef-ambassadors, hosting tips and more
. The charity is encouraging participants to share their photographs and stories on social media using #SupperForSimon to help promote the campaign. For more information call Amy on 091 381828.
A few of us came together and made this video for the Simon Community on a voluntary basis. I know it’s the “silly season” and it’s all about feeling good but we would really appreciate it if you could share the video for this worthwhile cause.
