BuskAid is back this year, with some great live music and plenty of bucket-shakers around Waterford to help raise money for local homelessness charities. The guys have teamed up with local partners to raise money for Tintean Housing Association.
Almost four years in, the city-wide event has raised almost €15,000 for charity, which is no small feat for what started as a Facebook post. Local musician, Tadhg Williams asked other musicians to help him highlight the plight of homelessness in Ireland.
Since then, Tadhg and some other well-known faces of Waterford’s artistic community have joined forces, taking to the streets every Christmas, singing festive songs and raising money for their cause. Last year, over 100 volunteers came out to do their bit. And this year’s event aims to be EVERY bit as successful!
Definitely one for Waterford to be proud of. Check out their promo video below – keep up the singing guys!
