Seven hardy members of staff from Propertymark in Warwick spent a night sleeping rough in support of YMCA Coventry and Warwickshire’s Sleep Easy project.
Armed with cardboard boxes, bin liners, sleeping bags and gathered around a lit brazier, they prepared to spend a long night outdoors on the outskirts of a rugby pitch. Along with other fundraisers they endured temperatures which dipped to 5° and attempted to stay dry through long periods of rain.
The event was organised to raise vital funds for the charity which believes that every young person should be able to develop their full potential in body, mind and spirit and achieves this through providing accommodation for 68 otherwise homeless young homeless people.
Fundraising has attracted generous support from arla | propertymark, nava | propertymark and naea | propertymark members from across the country, along with other members of staff. The total raised by to date is £1124 – from a target of £500.
The fundraising page remains open, thank you to those who have already supported the project and if you can make a donation please visit:
