Can you spare £1?
It’s not often we ask for much, but we need your help for the CEO Sleepout at KCOM Stadium tonight. You might be wondering why we’re taking part this year; read on and find out.
Homelessness is a major problem in Hull and country-wide; we don’t want to sit back and ignore it, but we’ve never been sure how we can best help. We often find people sleeping outside our offices and would be clueless without the support and advice of our friends at Emmaus Hull & East Riding.
We haven’t got enough space to shout about the tireless work Kelly and her team do to tackle homelessness in the area. Pop across to their website and have a look, and download their amazing new app which alerts the Street Outreach Team to rough sleepers, as well as allowing people to request collection of things they want to donate.
Lou, Suze and Chrissie will be giving up their warm beds for the night next Thursday, and all we’re asking for is £1 from everyone who reads this. Every single person who donates will be entered in a prize draw to win a family ticket to one of our Christmas events – we haven’t announced them yet, but trust us, you won’t want to miss them (oh no you won’t!).
So please; take a moment, donate £1 to our Just Giving page, and get yourself on the Back to Ours Nice List forevermore.
