We coordinate a number of fundraising events but our main focus is the organisation of Sleep Easys, which provide fundraisers with the opportunity to get a taste for sleeping rough while raising both awareness and funds to combat homelessness in the local area.
``I’m really pleased to be here. Full-time employment is sometimes the only separation between a person living an ordinary life or becoming homeless. When I was 15, I spent a bit of time sleeping rough so it’s something I feel quite passionate about. My resounding memory was how slowly time passed, and the feeling of isolation and of vulnerability.``
