Story

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I'm honoured to be representing Durham Business Group taking part in the first CEO Sleepout to take place in the cloister of the magnificent Durham Cathedral, hoping to raise as much money as I can to support Durham's most needy.

Those that know me well know this is so far out of my comfort zone, right up there with my Sober October of 2013.  I don't own a sleeping bag and have a fear of bats!  However, one night of hardship for me can make a difference towards some of the hundreds of homeless across our region enduring bitter cold and dangerous conditions night after night, and with your help it can!

This experience of course is only one night and in no way compares to the difficulties the homeless have to face each day - but it's a challenge I can do and I hope it will raise awareness and make some difference to those less fortunate.

Whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated and I'm blessed to have your support, thank you 

Durham Cathedral itself has been a place of sanctuary for people for almost 1,000 years and continues to provide support for those in need, working with Durham Christian Partnership on projects including Durham Foodbank and  the Cathedral Listeners, trained volunteers available in the Cathedral for people who need someone to talk to.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
