My story

[p]On 9th November myself and my 9 year-old daughter Connie will be sleeping in cardboard boxes in the stands of Pirelli Stadium to raise money for the Burton-Upon-Trent and District YMCA. This is the first time that Connie is taking part in the event and she is both looking forward to it and slightly anxious.[/p][p]The Burton YMCA provide initial accommodation and support & move-on services to those who are homeless in East Staffordshire, work to help people avoid becoming homeless through family mediation and schools work, run a food bank which has distributed 1145 food parcels between January and September 2018, run a winter shelter in conjunction with local churches, and provides furniture to those in need and to the public. All of this is facilitated by the provision of funds from various sources and the impact that the YMCA has can be increased through additional funding. Please give generously.[/p][p]You are welcome to take part in the event if you live near enough, however if you'd rather sleep in the warmth, comfort and security of your own home then please consider sponsoring Connie and myself to sleep outdoors for the night.[/p]
