Join Waterford Chamber for the Big Deise Sleep Out

Big Deise Sleep Out 2018 Chamber

Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley is calling on the business community to join him in supporting The Big Deise Sleep in aid of Focus Ireland, which takes place on Friday, 30th November.

This is Gerald’s second year supporting the event at the Edmund Rice Heritage Centre, which raises much needed funds for the homeless service, which has been in Waterford for the last 18 years and the city is now the charity’s largest centre outside of Dublin.

“While it was certainly one of the most uncomfortable nights of my life, it was also a very humbling experience. Yes we had some good laughs and I met wonderful people, but in the dead of night, it’s hard not to think of those less fortunate than ourselves.

“I was delighted to meet Thomas Barr last year, who has always been a huge supporter of the Big Deise Sleep Out and pending training commitments, he is committed to joining us again this year. He is a wonderful Ambassador, not just for Waterford, but for Ireland, and given the year he has had, I’ve no doubt we’ll have plenty to talk about in the wee hours!”

Focus Ireland have received support from Waterford and St Dominic’s Credit Unions and for anybody wishing to join the sleepout, or lend their support, please contact Cathryn O’Leary on 086 6042854.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience. Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face. We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
