Homelessness is something that can happen to anyone. It’s not why we did it, but it’s also been a really good way of building engagement across the firm; everyone’s been really enthusiastic and positive.[/p][p][b]About the Event:[/b][/p][p]Individuals and local businesses have been invited to take part in a unique charity fundraising event aimed at raising awareness of homelessness and essential funds to support YMCA Bournemouth’s work helping homeless people to achieve independent living and secure a positive long-term future.[/p][p]The BIG Sleep Easy offers a fantastic challenge to individuals and companies to set themselves a fundraising target, build the best cardboard shelters and ‘survive’ until morning. For local businesses and organisations, it’s also the perfect opportunity for team-building, informal networking and the chance to demonstrate an organisation’s community spirit.[/p][p]Upon arriving, participants will be given two/three cardboard boxes to set up their shelter in a secure outside games area. The shelters can then be decorated as desired, with prizes awarded for aesthetics and innovation.[/p][p]If you're interested in taking part in The Big Sleep Easy, contact fundraising@ymcabournemouth.org.uk.[/p]
