Story

Leading law firm Lester Aldridge is excited to announce its participation in YMCA Bournemouth's fundraising event, the Big Sleep Easy, on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. The firm's team will join forces with YMCA Bournemouth and other local businesses and sleep outdoors to raise awareness and funds to combat homelessness in the local area.

The Big Sleep Easy event aims to shed light on the challenges faced by individuals experiencing homelessness and raise crucial funds to provide essential support and resources. Participants spend a night sleeping in makeshift shelters on the grounds of Talbot Heath School to gain insight into the realities faced by those without secure housing.

Lester Aldridge will be sponsoring and participating in the Big Sleep for the sixth consecutive year, supporting the essential and often life-saving work of YMCA Bournemouth. Over the last five years, the firm has raised over £20,000 for the charity.

As part of Lester Aldridge's ongoing commitment to corporate social responsibility, the firm is proud to support YMCA Bournemouth and contribute to this meaningful cause. The dedicated team of lawyers and support staff will brave the elements and sleep under the stars to emphasise the urgent need for safe and stable housing for all community members.

Mark Benham, Partner at LA and one of the participants expressed his enthusiasm about the upcoming event, stating, "Lester Aldridge is deeply committed to making a positive impact in the community. We are honoured to once again join forces with YMCA Bournemouth for the Big Sleep Easy. This event raises awareness about homelessness and supports the invaluable work of the charity in providing vital services. Our team is eager to participate and raise funds to help create a society where everyone has a safe and secure place to call home."
