November sees an exciting challenge for Robert Woodhead as we are taking part in Framework Housing Association’s annual Big Sleep Out. This year the event promises to be a huge success, spaces have already been allocated to over 300 people who will be swapping a warm bed for a cardboard box and sleeping rough for a night. The event takes place on 15th November 2012 outside the Capital FM Arena. The event aims to raise money for local homeless and vulnerable people who regularly sleep rough. Robert Woodhead has supported framework for over a decade regularly taking part in The Big Sleep Out as well as sponsoring various Framework initiatives and providing work experience opportunities for service users.
Glenn Slater Business Development Director at Robert Woodhead comments “Over our 10 year partnership with Framework Housing we have really enjoyed taking part in fundraising, even though this years Big Snore was very challenging it was -10 degrees, it illustrated how hard it must be to regularly sleep on the streets. We have completed multiple projects for Framework to improve the life of vulnerable people where we operate. You can see the work we do with Framework by clicking here, if you decide to sponsor us, Thank you!”
This year eight brave members of staff from Robert Woodhead and K-Panels will be rolling out their sleeping bags and braving freezing temperatures in a bid to raise money for the Nottinghamshire based charity. We will be keeping a video diary of the night which we will upload to our YouTube Channel shortly after the event so be sure to keep checking back.
