Partner Charity

As well as being a fundraiser for St. Finbarr’s AC we are delighted to partner with a charity each year to donate some of the funds raised.

In 2022 our partner charity is Cork Simon.

The Cork Simon Emergency Shelter on Anderson’s Quay is overflowing with an average of 60 people per night relying on a Cork Simon emergency bed. The housing crisis is pushing people into homelessness and preventing people from leaving homelessness.
