On Monday October 16, I will be giving up the comfort and security of my bed for a night in the open in aid of CEO Sleepout Manchester.
The charity, founded in 2013, strives to fight homelessness and poverty, and raise vital funds for homeless charities and other local charitable projects.
If, like me, you cannot fail to be moved by the extent of the homeless situation in Manchester - over 200 people displaced and sleeping on the streets - I'd be grateful for your support.
You can sponsor me (pennies and pounds of all values appreciated) or join me on the night. It will be cold and uncomfortable for sure, but it will be within the security of others and I'll have the luxury of returning to a warm home the morning after; a privilege so many others don't enjoy.
Please help make a small and positive difference to a significant problem.
Thanks. Jules x
