Extern pay tribute to Gerry Skelton

Extern were delighted to present Gerry Skelton with a plague in recognition for his hard work and dedication to homelessness in Northern Ireland.

Charlie Mack, CEO of Extern Group paid tribute to Mr Skelton by saying, "I believe people who are homeless do not have a choice as it is caused by situations often well beyond their control.

We do have a choice however about how we respond to people in need. We need champions who year after year take a cause like homelessness to heart. People who see people as people not as labelled "homeless". People who are passionate and inspiring and who make things happen. Here today we recognise someone who Extern wants to promote as an example of those values- his name is Gerry Skelton.

We at Extern never walk away from people who are homeless and we want to promote and celebrate the contribution made by Gerry in some small way by awarding him with a token - a plaque in recognition of his inspirational passion and unstinting commitment for the cause of people who find themselves homeless."
