For one night only... I'm trading my goose down duvet and silk pj's to "sleepout" at Turf Moor, the home of Burnley FC this October.
And those of you who know me well, will know that I wouldn't be doing this unless I was 110% committed to raising money for these worthwhile charities that provide a range of vital community services including support for education, recreation, homelessness and domestic violence.
Joined by my some of my fellow directors here at VEKA, we will be experiencing what it feels like not to climb into a warm bed after a nice cup of cocoa on a cold (and likely wet) evening and in doing this we/I hope to not only reach but exceed my fundraising target!
I will be documenting the evening (be prepared to see me without make-up and looking a little worse for wear) via the usual social media channels... so please dig deep!
Taking place on Friday 12th October, the Turf Sleepout will ask those taking part to give up the comfort of their own bed for the night and commit to raising a minimum of £250 to be split three ways between Burnley FC in the Community (charity number: 1155856), homelessness charity Emmaus (charity number: 1064470) and SafeNet Domestic Abuse Service for Janes Place Womens Refuge (charity number: 1091544).
