About Welcome Home
Welcome Home was established in 1990 to raise funds to assist Fr. Peter McVerry in providing accommodation and services for young homeless people. Today, events continue to support that work by raising funds for Peter McVerry Trust. Funds are raised through a number of annual events including the Wexford Cycle and the Golf Classic. The Cycle was started in 1990 and is the biggest, and most popular, event. The Golf Classic is the second oldest event, and enjoys consistent and generous support.
The Wexford Cycle has been supporting Peter McVerry Trust since 1990. The Wexford Cycle asks all cyclists to raise a minimum of €250 in sponsorship in addition to the €80 registration. To assist cyclists in fundraising, Welcome Home is signed up with EverydayHero so participants can create an online fundraising page.
