Tony McQuillan, Shelter NI Director and Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast, Cllr Mary Ellen Campbell
On Sunday 4th September we have launched a new dynamic campaign aimed at raising awareness of homelessness in Northern Ireland.
This charity event was held on the Belfast City Hall grounds where the little ones could have their faces painted and create their greetings card. We were also providing information on Shelter NI's work and the aims of this new #ItsInYourHands campaign.
We would like to thank the Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Mary Ellen Campbell for sparing her valuable time and supporting us on the day.
We would also like to thank everyone that joined us on Sunday and helped us to raise £230.59.
To show their support for Shelter NI and to raise awareness of homelessness, people were challenged to paint their hands blue and print them on a white sheet.
If you would like to partake in this challenge, paint your hand blue; take a selfie; nominate 3 friends and share it in your social media.
