We love supporting the local community and after taking part in the fun run over the summer for Love Your Hospitals, we decided that it was time we did something else!
A few of our business members, including Darren Ford of Affordable Security, Mark Price of MK Windows and Darren Crabb Wealth Management have decided to take part in the Worthing Churches Homeless Projects Annual Sponsored Sleepout and persuaded us to get involved too!
Whilst you are tucked up nice and warm in your houses, on January 28th 2012 we will be joining the other fundraisers on the playground of Broadwater CofE Middle School to see how soul-destroying homelessness must be.
We will all meet at the school from 7:30pm with a barbeque (if you wish) or you are welcome to arrive at 9pm with sleeping bags and plenty of warm clothes.
However we will not be experiencing homelessness in full as are lucky enough to be surrounded by friends in a safe environment. The perception of homelessness is far from reality. Any of us can be struck down by bad luck at any time and in this economic climate we might not all be able to cope with the financial strains put upon us or might not have the loved ones to support us. Over 86% of young homeless are forced to leave their homes and with a life expectancy of less than 42 this is no way for people to live.
The Worthing Churches Homeless Projects run various shelters, day centres, recovery projects and mental health sessions which offer the homeless people of Worthing the chance to regain independence.
Last year those who took part raised over £18,000 and this year we hope to beat this total. Here at the office we are currently putting together our JustGiving page for you to donate and help support us. We are really excited about getting involved and raising money for such a worthy cause. If you would like to join us then please register by contacting Sean on 01903 286480 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
