On Thursday all Ty's gathered into the library for a talk on the Simon Community. It was very interesting and I learnt a lot about the organisation. There are houses spread out in a number of counties in Ireland just for homeless people to go when they have nowhere else to sleep for the night.. A lot of activities take place in these houses also.
The teacher giving us this talk had volunteered with them over the summer and she was sent to a particular house to work with the people in it. Her main project was Art where the people in the house designed a canvas painting.The paintings she showed us were really good, and it showed so such effort was put into them.I learnt that many people give up their time to volunteer with the Simon community to do other activities just like this. :)
