My story

[p]This year I am taking part in The BIG Sleepout in aid of childrens charity [url=mailto:SAFE@LAST]SAFE@LAST[/url].[/p][p]This year I will be sleeping rough in Barnsley on FRIDAY 5th OCTOBER, in Sheffield on FRIDAY 12th October AND in Rotherham on FRIDAY 19th OCTOBER! This is going to be tough but the personal challenge, the discomfort, the lack of sleep and braving all weathers is worth it to raise funds to support the vital work that [url=mailto:SAFE@LAST]SAFE@LAST[/url] does to help children at risk through running away safe in the South Yorkshire region.[/p][p]The children [url=mailto:SAFE@LAST]SAFE@LAST[/url] works with are those who have 'fallen through the gaps' and have been let down by their parents/carers, by the authorities and by society. These are children who feel they have little choice but to spend a night or more on the street to flee violence or abuse or because they have been thrown out from home.  They are children and they all have the right to be loved, to be kept safe and to be given a decent start in life. This is why I'm putting myself through this hard challenge again. I know that every penny you give will make a difference to [url=mailto:SAFE@LAST]SAFE@LAST[/url].[/p][p]Please check out the event website [url=http://www.thebigsleepout.co.uk]www.thebigsleepout.co.uk[/url] for more info about the event and especially if you or somebody you know would like to take part.[/p][p] [/p]
