CEO Sleepout Strikes a Century at Old Trafford

With over 100 senior managers from businesses across the region already signed up for the sleep out at Old Trafford cricket ground in October, CEO Sleep Out has hit a century and is still counting.

With each participant targeted to raise over one thousand pounds, this means that the event could raise in excess of £100,000 to help the most vulnerable people in Manchester and support CEO Sleep Out’s national campaign.

The event involves the people participating swapping the comfort of suburbia for a sleeping bag.  After the success of last year’s event where £64k was raised for the homeless in Manchester, the event is again being held at Old Trafford Cricket Ground where business managers and owners will get a taste of the what it’s like by braving the worst that the elements can throw at them for a night outside.

Last year the money raised was distributed by CEO Sleep Out, that organises similar events across the UK, to local charities including MASH, Mustard Tree, Depaul, Lancashire County Cricket Club Foundation, The Booth Centre, The Church Urban Fund and smaller causes along with contributing to the CEOSleepOut national causes.

On top of the dangers of living on the streets, the recent Spice epidemic, makes it all the more important to help vulnerable people escape the trap of street life.  Andy Preston of CEO Sleep Out commented “it’s become frighteningly common to walk across the city centre and see people passed out in the middle of pavements or even in the gutter.  It’s vital that we provide help to these people as Spice has had a profoundly disturbing impact, worsening the conditions for many and making the streets an even more dangerous place to live than before.”

CEO Sleepout Manchester 2017, is one of 8 ‘sleepouts’ to be staged across the UK this year by CEO Sleep Out, with the initiative hoping to raise over £500,000 in total.  Since launching in 2013 the charity has seen over 1,000 executives take on the challenge and raised over £1,000,000 to fight homelessness and poverty in the UK.

There’s still time to sign-up for this fantastic fund-raising event, to register or pledge your support to fight homelessness and poverty in the city visit the CEO Sleepout website at www.ceosleepoutuk.com/manchester.



"It's become frighteningly common to walk across the city and see people passed out in the middle of pavements or even in the gutter. It's vital that we come together to help these people."
