The Claremont charity team is taking the opportunity to spend a night experiencing what life can be like for some of the UK’s most vulnerable people. A few of the more intrepid members of the team have signed up to take part in a sponsored sleepout on the site of a disused pub, to experience firsthand what life is like for thousands of rough sleepers across the country.
The team is raising funds and awareness for one of our chosen charities for 2017, Coffee4Craig. The charity provides much-needed support and outreach services to homeless people in Manchester, Salford and Cardiff.
The sleepout is taking place at the Woolpack Pub in Pendleton, which has been acquired by the charity from Salford City Council, with the aim of turning it into a community hub to help those in need. If you’d like to support our team in their efforts, then please visit their online donation page to make a donation.
With over 50 volunteers, Coffee4Craig operates a food bank, 4 street kitchens and a network that supports and helps over 200 people each week, helping to find housing and provide much needed help to some of society’s most vulnerable individuals. For more information, visit the charity website.
