Caddick raises funds for young homeless
Monday, 28 November 2016
The team at Yorkshire-based business, Caddick Construction has raised more than £4,100 for homeless charity Centrepoint after taking part in a sponsored sleep out.
Seven members of the team bundled up along with hundreds of others at The Provident Stadium, Bradford, to experience what young homeless people go through every night that they sleep outdoors or in an unsafe place.
Debbie Watson, Marketing Manager at Caddick Construction, took part in the activity. She said: “We were really keen to raise funds for Centrepoint as they support a lot of young homeless people in getting the training and qualifications needed to get a foothold in the construction industry.
“The experience was extremely humbling. It was a long, cold night with little sleep, but we know that young people experience much worse than that every night.”
Centrepoint is the UK's leading charity for homeless young people. Together with its partners, it supports 9,000 young people every year. It helps 16-25 year olds into a safe place to live, gives them a health assessment and plans support for their individual mental and physical health needs, starting them on a path to more independence and a job.
The sleep out is Centrepoint’s flagship fundraising event, and this year the charity aims to raise £500,000 to help them tackle rough sleeping. The sleep out will take place in 12 cities across the UK in November, with thousands expected to take part.
