Team story

[p]Effie (7), Seth (5) and India (2) (and mummy and daddy) are giving up their warm and cosy beds for the night in order to raise awareness and much needed Funds for YMCA Burton.[/p][p]Following several meeting with the YMCA the family have been inspired by the fabulous work this incredible charity do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in helping the homeless. Seeing the passion of the staff and observing where the money raised goes first hand has wanted Effie and Seth (and indeed the rest of their family) to raise even more. [/p][p]On hearing about this years sleepout The kids didn't hesitate to sign up. It's Effie’s fourth sleepout, Seth’s third and India’s first (although technically she did take part when mummy did it at 7 months pregnant!). It is great opportunity to help raise awareness for an issue that is often hidden but is sadly becoming more common. [/p][p]Effie and Seth will be sleeping outside in the garden and India will be sleeping in her box in the kitchen. [/p][p]I can’t emphasise enough how much the money raised will make a difference. This is a charity that really does use the money in the best way possible. They provide both long term and short term help, help with education, family mediation, food banks, accommodation, counselling. 2020 has been a devastating year for many of us. The majority of charities have also massively suffered, including the YMCA. Funds are needed more than ever to help them provide such an important lifeline to many of the most vulnerable in our society.[/p][p]Last years Sleepout was very tough. It was cold, it was draughty, it was uncomfortable. But we had our own warm, comfortable beds to go to the next day. And we were in a safe, protected environment. This isn’t the case for the thousands of homeless on our streets. So please, if you have a spare couple of pounds and would like to help, click the donate button! It is very much appreciated.
