Created 1 Project

We are an NCS (National Citizen Service) group. We are trying to create awareness about homelessness. It is a massive massive issue that's increasing every day, and not just in large cities such as London, Birmingham and Leeds. But in your local area.  Because of this we as a group of young dedicated teenagers, have decided to take part in a Sleep-out on the night of Wednesday 24th July-Thursday 25th July 2019. We wanted to do this, as an opportunity to really understand how hard it really is spending a night outside with little to no resources, as we really do take those little things for granted. We would really appreciate your donation, as it means we are able to donate it to Julian House. Julian House is a charity devoted to helping those who are on the streets. It helps them achieve a new start, by educating them, providing them with the correct attire for job interviews. Don't you think that it's important that we all do our bit to get these people off the streets and to help them get their lives together! Well, we do. That's why every penny made on here will be given to Julian House. Help us as a community change people's lives for the better.
