We Invite business leaders to sleep rough to fight poverty & homelessness UK wide

Charity Registration No. 1154963

Story

On the night of Thursday May 12th, I will be sleeping rough for the night to raise funds to fight local homelessness and poverty.

This amazing event is part of a charity that challenges business leaders to sleep rough for a night to help make the local area a fairer place to live and work. The event takes place in the Victorian Street at Preston Park Museum.

There is no known training for sleeping rough so I'm a little apprehensive about the experience. I will have my trusty sleeping bag with me but no arranged shelter. Your support will help to make it all worthwhile. I'm aiming to raise £1,000 on the night so your support would be very much appreciated.

The charity is using fundraising to open a not-for-profit restaurant in Middlesbrough to help homeless people into employment, giving them a sense of self-worth and independence to turn their lives around.
