YMCA Sleep Easy 2016

February 2016


Bell & Co is very proud to confirm that Account Executive, Becky Hitchcock is this year, following in footsteps of our Managing Director, Richard Salt in sleeping out for the local homeless this Friday night.

‘When it is cold and we are all warm and comfortable at home, it’s so easy to think that this is the norm and not realise the plight of others in a less fortunate position.’ That is the view of our Managing Director, Richard Salt who has done the sleep out for both of the last two years.

He added, ‘Unfortunately (or fortunately for me) this year, we are away in London so I cannot sleep out at the organised event. However, I am delighted that Becky, who has participated in this event before, is putting her hand up once more meaning we have participation from the business. We are all really proud of her.’

Becky commented, ‘I am glad to be able to help such a worthwhile cause. When I participated in this event two years ago, it really brought to light how much of a difference we can make and it was great to see that last year, YMCA helped 211 people in Derbyshire have a safe place to live as a result of the event.’
