Sleeping rough to show support
Beth and Rosie in Year 11 took part in the YMCA sleep easy event to raise funds for a new homeless shelter in Lincoln.
Beth and Rosie in Year 11 took part in the YMCA sleep easy event to raise funds for a new homeless shelter in Lincoln. The wonderful people who also took part (around 100 people) led the event to raising around a grand total of £10,000! The temperature was around freezing or even slightly below but it was all for a good cause as well as raising money we also raised awareness for the homeless and by sleeping rough it was a taste of how some people have to live. However we did it for a single night and people live like this for years so it makes you really grateful an appreciate the simple thing of a roof over your head. It was an amazing experience and we will be continuing to do it annually to raise more money and raise awareness along with the YMCA crew an the Nomad Trust. Hope to see you next year!
