A team from the Sheffield office will be supporting local charity, Roundabout – which provides shelter, support and life skills to over 250 young people and gives them a chance to turn their lives around by empowering them to break the cycle of homelessness – by taking part in its flagship event, Sleep Out 2019 on Friday 8th November.
They will be spending the night in a warehouse to raise awareness of the valuable work that the charity does to support young people in South Yorkshire affected by homelessness. Ahead of the event, in which the team is hoping to raise more than £1,250 in sponsorship, we caught up with some of them to find out what made them want to take part in Sleep Out 2019.
Ben Graney, Business Director
“Roundabout is a charity that we are proud to have been involved with now for a number of years. I felt it was time for us to take the next step up in supporting the great work they do, and take a more active role in helping to increase Roundabout’s publicity in the local region. I wanted to take myself and our team out of our comfort zones, both in the lead up to the event and by participating in the Sleep Out.”
Caitlin Davidson, Sales Support Administrator
“I’ve never been involved in a charity event like this before. I think it will be an eye-opening experience.”
Matt Civil, Consultant
“Having grown up in Yorkshire, and only finding out about Roundabout in the past couple of years, I wanted to support a local charity that a lot of people might not have heard of. Since signing up to the Sleep Out, my friends and family are asking me about who and what it is for, which in turn will raise the profile of this fantastic local charity.”
