Sleepout

You can choose to sponsor our annual Sleepout and to encourage your staff to participate to the collection.

During the 2011 edition the team at Ulster Bank Drogheda placed collection buckets on all of their counters to help raise funds for the annual sponsored sleepout. The money collected in the branch reached €1,000, and then Ulster Bank very kindly provided a matching grant which doubled this amount to €2,000.

The 2012 and 2013 Sleepout was joined by representatives from IFS, a Statestreet company. Statestreet very kindly sponsored as well the sleepout to the tune of €10,500 and Coca Colas kindly donated €2,000.
