Last year over 4,000 people were sleeping rough, a number
that has been recorded as being on the rise since 2010 (Source: www.homeless.org.uk).
The YMCA Downslink Group in Hove, East Sussex actively seeks to raise awareness and funds to support the
young homeless in the greater Brighton area and local branch manager Jeremy
Gale is getting involved in their next fundraising event.
Jeremy will be joining over 50 other fundraisers in the
Sleep Easy 2017 challenge - 3 sleepouts that will all take place simultaneously
in Brighton, Horsham and Guildford. On
Friday 24th March 2017 they will be bedding down in sleeping bags
and cardboard boxes raising money to support the work of
the local YMCA.
