My story

[p]Those of you who know me will probably know that I'm not the type to jump out of airplanes, trek through the Amazon or climb Kilimanjaro however I like to do my bit when it comes to charity and our community. [/p][p]So when my friend Jess told me about the Burton YMCA Sleep Out and the difference I could make, I signed up immediately! I am definitely a homemaker and love my creature comforts and to be honest I know I unconsciously take them for granted. So on Friday 9th November I will be stepping out of my comfort zone, giving up my bed for the night and will be sleeping outside under the stars in order to raise funds for those who find themselves without a home, without a safe haven and without a bed.[/p][p]The YMCA provides a home to more than 18,000 people experiencing homelessness each year, but there are so many more in need. Last year more than 400 people from all walks of life died homeless in the UK with the youngest aged 18. This winter is set to be one of the hardest the UK has ever seen so if me giving up my bed for a night can help even 1 person stay safe this winter then its definitely worth it. [/p][p]So this is where I need your help guys, whatever you can spare please 50p, £1, £5 whatever your can, please sponsor me to take part in the YMCA Sleepout 18, all donations will make a massive difference and really really appreciated.[/p][p]Thanks so much guys for all your help and support, now wish me luck and watch out for pics of the evening![/p]
