Long standing Simon Community supporter, Vincent Butler, produced a book of photography last year called ‘Sixty Photographs for Simon’. The book contains a compilation of 60 stunning photographs that Vincent has taken during his long career as an expert historian and guide, on cruises and expeditions across the world encompassing the Arctic, Scandinavia, Europe, Africa, South America, Antarctica and Asia.
Vincent secured sponsorship for all costs associated with the project, which means that 100% of funds generated through sales of the book will directly benefit the Simon Communities of Ireland. To date, he has raised over €41,000 and has gifted €14,000 of this to Galway Simon to fund the annual cost of our Client Involvement & Wellness Programme.
Last week, at an event that was organised in celebration of the incredible effort he has devoted to the project to date, Vincent and his wife Lyndy met with some clients, volunteers, and staff members involved in the programme.
