Network Homes staff sleep outside to raise nearly £2,000 for the homeless

Eight Network Homes staff took part in the Big Sleep Out at Hillingdon Athletics Track on 30 November to raise nearly £2,000 for homelessness charities.

They joined over 300 people, including DJ Brandon Block, to take part in the event to experience what street homelessness might be like. Flat-pack boxes, flasks and layers of clothes were all they had to protect themselves from the elements as they spent a night under the stars.

The cash raised will go to the charity Slough Homeless Our Concern (SHOC) and Hillingdon based Trinity Homelessness Projects which provide services to help tackle homelessness in their surrounding areas.

We’re really proud of our staff for taking part in this challenge even if it offers only a tiny glimpse of what it must be like to living on the streets. “Helping to tackle homelessness is a big part of what we do at Network Homes so it’s great that we can play our part. Many thanks all those who generously donated.

Fiona Deal, Network Homes Executive Director for People and Culture
