The Big Sleep Out
On Friday 22 November, I am taking part in a sleep out to help raise money and awareness for a subject that is very close to my heart, homelessness. Every day we walk passed ever increasing numbers of people who have nowhere to call home, many of whom suffer from mental illness, these are societies most vulnerable. So just for one night I will spend the night as these people do, open to the elements on our streets. The charity that I am raising funds for Chess Homeless, is proactive in the Chelmsford area, working to give these people another chance at life, offering them a safe place to spend the night and helping them with that first step back on the ladder.
