On Friday the 13th of October 2017, Focus Ireland held their annual ‘Shine a Light’ homeless campaign.  On this evening members of the business community throughout Ireland give up a night of comfort to sleep under the stars in solidarity with the fight against homelessness.

As part of the evening Bord Gáis Energy staff came to Iveagh Gardens to take part in this nationwide event and Big Red Engine was there to record the thoughts and feelings of the people involved.

It was a challenging evening, as we began to set-up in the dark, the heavy rain started to pour down and we had to improvise with a pop-up gazebo, and what can only be described as a Karl Dillon ‘unique umbrella contraption’ (patent pending), but we managed to battle on in some very difficult surroundings and we produced this video that Bord Gáis Energy used in social media to bring awareness to the homeless of Ireland.
