Wide awake for homeless

We’re proud to support this year’s YMCA Bournemouth Big Sleep Easy to help the homeless.

Our managing director Simon Boyd will be braving the cold to take part in the event at Bournemouth Sports Club in November.

He will join 200 staff, managers and directors from businesses and organisations under the stars to raise awareness and funds.

Simon said: “I have decided to forego my warm bed for a night to try and help raise money through the big sleep easy for the YMCA.

“Please support me in raising some money for those who need our help.”

Last year’s event raised a staggering £25,000 for the YMCA’s work.

Simon and fellow fundraisers this year will wrap up warm, build shelters out of cardboard boxes, take part in fun challenges and then sleep outside for a night in an enclosed area, warmed only by their sleeping bag, hot drinks and the supportive messages of those who’ve sponsored […]
