Story

Every year our local community comes together to decorate our huge 15 metre tall Christmas Tree with thousands of lights.  It really brings a great community and Christmas spirit to our entire neighbourhood and across the wider area as it can be seen from a large part of Holywood.

Many people come from all over to have a look at our tree so we use this as a way to raise awareness of homelessness and to raise funds for the Simon Community NI.

In 2021 we raised enough to give 100 homeless people a Christmas Dinner to also bring a little joy to their own lives.

Simon Community Northern Ireland believes everyone should have a place to call home. They are Northern Ireland’s leading homelessness charity & the largest provider with 21 emergency and temporary accommodation based services offering 464 beds and a warm welcome, every night of the year. Each year they support over 3,000 people who find themselves without a home.
