Belfast’s success story, Snow Patrol, were home this week to attend the MTV music awards and took time out of their busy schedule to support our Blanket Appeal.
Gary Lightbody, lead singer with Snow Patrol, said “We are delighted to support Depaul Ireland in launching their blanket campaign.
The work they do supporting people who are homeless is critical, particularly at this time of the year. We would really encourage others to get involved and support them in whatever way they can.
“Snow Patrol always receive such a warm welcome when they return home and we are delighted that they have chosen to endorse our campaign. At Depaul Ireland we seek to create a warm welcome to those who have for some time not experienced this. Many of the people we work with have experienced life on the streets and have felt the exclusion and isolation that comes with this, we want their experience at Depaul Ireland to be different and for them to receive the warmest of welcomes in a place of safety.” said Kerry Anthony , CEO of Depaul Ireland.
We are really excited to have Snow Patrol on board to help with this important campaign. To visit our Blanket Appeal website click here.
