Lucy Pope, Operations Manager at Alderwood Education, is taking part in Centrepoint's Sleep Out on Thursday 10 November 2011. Lucy is participating as part of a team of seven from the Women in Welfare networking forum. The team are aiming to raise over £2,000 for this great cause and have already achieved 40% of their target.
The event is being held in London’s Exchange Square where over 650 people will take to the streets to sleep on cardboard boxes for the evening in order to raise money for Centrepoint.
Centrepoint is the national charity helping homeless young people. Whether they have run away from neglect or abuse to sleep rough, or been thrown out at 16 to fend for themselves, young people are vulnerable on the streets and need help. Centrepoint offer safe accommodation and a chance for people to turn their lives around with counselling, education and training for life.
