Here's how to help Cork Simon AND get your hands on a beautiful calendar

ONE euro from every Irish Examiner and Evening Echo calendar sold this Christmas will be given to the Cork Simon Community to aid their ongoing battle against homelessness.

Here's how to help Cork Simon AND get your hands on a beautiful calendar

Entitled 'Trades and Traditions of the Past' this year's calendar is a beautiful selection of photographs from the Irish Examiner and Evening Echo archive and captures imagery from trades and traditions of years gone by.

The Simon Communities throughout Ireland provide care, accommodation and support for people experiencing and at risk of homelessness.

Simon also work hard to tackle the root causes of homelessness, promote innovative responses to it and continually lobby government and the relevant state agencies in relation to the issue.

Simon delivers support and service to over 5,000 individuals and families on an annual basis.

This year's calendar is priced at €12 and is on sale now from the Irish Examiner and Evening Echo shop on Oliver Plunkett St, and online here.

Commenting on this year's calendar initiative, Deputy Marketing Manager Karen O'Donoghue said both the Irish Examiner and Evening Echo were delighted to be involved with the charity.

"It’s a charity that does great work in the city and it’s wonderful to be able to fundraise on their behalf. The calendar is an opportunity to showcase the photographs that we have available in the archive and we’d hope that it will bring a lovely sense of nostalgia into peoples homes next year when they’re looking back at the old black and white images."
