Mr McCay writes...
...on Saturday 13th October, I'm marking World Homeless Day by sleeping out overnight in Strabane. By doing this, I hope to raise awareness of homelessness and much needed funds for our chosen charities throughout Ireland.
Almost 10,000 people described themselves as homeless in Ireland this year. That includes men, women, couples and families. These are staggering figures, but the most important message is that we can all help.
You don't have to sleep out to help. €15 feeds a whole family for 2 days. £50 helps parents to learn new skills that will help them work their way out of homelessness while meeting their children's needs.
£100 helps keep families safe and warm during the cold winter months when the heating needs to be turned up for babies and children.
Best of luck to all taking part in this fundraising event.
