A group of Worth students will be sleeping outdoors for a night this weekend to raise money to help the current homelessness crisis facing the UK.
Our Chaplaincy Reps will be sacrificing the comfort of their own beds on Saturday by sleeping in their gardens in aid of the Cardinal Hume Centre, a charity in London which offers a wide range of services for homeless young people and families in need, helping them gain the skills and support they need to overcome poverty and homelessness.
Year 12 student Will, who will be taking part in the ‘Sleep out to help out’ initiative, said: “I am personally doing this sleepout because I want to get an idea of what the homeless have to go through on a daily basis when night-time falls and the struggles they have to face like the cold, knowing other people are in a comfortable bed and the worry of keeping your possessions safe while you rest.
“I want to do this to raise awareness and make a change. By raising money, we are helping the homeless with immediate effect and knowing that you might just put a smile on their face in such desperate times is a heartwarming feeling.”
