Thanks! The Big Sleep Out
Thanks to everyone who very kindly sponsored us for The Big Sleep Out.
We raised a wonderful £1247.50 from sponsorship and staff fundraising (including 50% matched donation by the Company). We are absolutely thrilled about this total.
The Big Sleep Out is an annual event to raise money for Trinity. Trinity supports over 600 people each year. They provide a safe place to come to, somewhere to call home in the day, hot showers, nutritious meals and a listening ear.
Check out photos from the night on our new facebook page.
Lou Espig, Office Administrator said, “It was a chilly damp night but we worked as a team to build a great shelter with carboard and groundsheets and got a reasonable night sleep. We are lucky enough to go back to warm homes afterwards and really appreciated them.”
Katherine Howlett Davies, PA to MD added, “We had three daughters with us, between 7 and 13 years, sharing the experience. We all discussed what an insight it was and how difficult life on the streets must be.”
Peter Rogers, MD said, “It was extremely insightful and humbling to be involved. My back is still recovering ! Thank you to all our generous clients, partners, friends and family for supporting us and helping us raise such a whopping amount of money for this important cause. We'll be doing it again, so you'll hear from us again as we make a noise to end homelessness”
