Reach for a star to aid homeless

Focus Ireland joined forces with the Piccolo Lasso Children's Choir yesterday to switch on the Christmas tree lights on Grafton Street which are dedicated to homeless people.

The ceremony was part of the charity's campaign, which has raised almost €230,000 so far this year by companies sponsoring a star on the tree.

Focus Ireland paid tribute to businesses for digging deep and bringing a bit of light into the lives of people who will be living rough this Christmas.
