In November last year our Chief Executive Officer, Paul Evans, braved the elements and slept outdoors for an evening to help raise awareness and funds towards fighting homelessness and poverty in Manchester with the CEO Sleepout.
CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. Their fight is funded with money raised by big hearted business and community leaders who pledge to sleep outdoors for one night to raise awareness and sponsorship from their business contacts and friends. That money is put to work fighting homelessness and poverty at various cities through the UK.
This February, CEO Sleepout held a presentation to announce the grand total raised by all who took part in the Manchester sleepout, which was an amazing £48,000!
Funds from this event were distributed to a number of local charities including Mustard Tree, MASH and Street Pets. Take a look at the short video below from Mustard Tree to see how these donations can help to combat poverty and prevent homelessness.
