On Monday 18 October, 2021 I took part in CEO Sleeptout Manchester and WE raised £1,396.85 – over 50% of our target in 48 hours a massive – WELL DONE. 

CEO Sleepout Manchester 2021 raised £46,500 for three Manchester based charities – DMSF, Barnabus Manchester and Walking with the Wounded. That amount multiplied by 10 cities across the UK is approx half a million. That CASH makes a real difference to people’s lives and impacts directly on homeless prevention – what a BRILLIANT outcome.

It was the first time I have ever used Broadcast on WhatsApp and although it felt uncomfortable pressing SEND knowing that my message may have come out of the blue for some of you, I am super proud and GRATEFUL for your support, every penny you donated and the compassion you showed.

Thanks to every single one of our brilliant supporters, and a big SHOUT OUT to John Russell who was self-isolating but still camped out on his patio at home! That’s dedication.

THANK YOU.  We did it.
