YMCA Sleep Out Challenge

Added in support of Neil Kirby & the YMCA

Last Saturday night saw me and my family sleeping rough as part of the YMCA Sleep Out challenge.  The aim was to raise awareness of homelessness in the UK and raise funds for the YMCA’s work with homeless people.

Well, the temperature was -5°, colder with the wind chill.  It was cold, noisy and uncomfortable.  We were lucky – we were only out for one night – and we had thermals, a thick sleeping bag and a supply of hot drinks.  Nevertheless it was grim.  And for many people, this is what they face every night.


If you’d like to support the cause you can still donate at  www.justgiving.com/kirbys.
