This Friday night our Managing Director, Richard Salt will take to his cardboard box and sleep rough in aid of Derby YMCA.

Our MD Sleeps Rough for YMCA

 

February 2015


As part of their Sleep Easy event for the second year running

Richard advised 'Many will know that a team from the business did this last year in supporting our local YMCA. It was great team building and left a real effect on us. Having watched the money raised, there were many positive outcomes including;

131 people have a safe place to stay - 86 of whom are under 25
119 positive move on's - 75 of whom were under 25
12 young people gaining a Business Mentor giving extra support needed to gain employment, with 4 of them now in work.

The tangible and sensible way the money has been spent has motivated me to go out into the cold one more time! This time rather than have my work friends around me I have decided to do this myself feeling how someone in this position may do. I have had good support from my family, Board, colleagues, clients and I hope they'll be thinking about me on the night.'
