My story

[p]I'm about to embark on my 8th Sleep Easy but my first ever [b]virtual [/b]one, and what a different night it will be. Every year it's tough spending a night sleeping rough in a car park, it's often so cold and I've previously experienced rain and snow but I am usually surrounded by at least 100 other people, spending time talking round the campfire and reflecting together. [/p][p]This year it will just be me in my garden spending time thinking about what it really would be like to be sleeping outside alone. [/p][p]It has been a really tough year for everyone and especially for those we support, many have experienced food and or digital poverty, loneliness and isolation and many have struggled with their mental health. We have done some amazing work to help young people and communities by providing emergency food parcels, IT equipment to enable young people to continue their studies or keep in touch with others to ease isolation. Our trained Therapeutic Counsellor has supported many young people struggling with their mental health at a time when they've needed this support most. [/p][p]I've seen so many young people arrive at our YMCA with little or no possessions and leave ready to live independently often having secured employment or entered training. [/p][p]So I know I ask every year but if there was anyway you could donate to my annual campaign I really would be so grateful. Every penny raised during Sleep Easy makes such a difference to the lives of those who find themselves temporarily without a place to call home. I'm proud that our YMCA provides a safe place to live for 193 individuals each night. Without us many would have no where to turn to. [/p][p]So on behalf of all of the young people and communities we support, thank you for your support! [/p]
