Support Cardiff YMCA Housing Association's 'Sleep Easy' event - 2 March 2012
- Monday, 23 January 2012
To ensure their services continue to meet demand, Cardiff YMCA Housing Association is working in partnership with Land Securities Group Plc, (owners of St Davids 2) to host their very first Sleep Easy event on Level 6 of the St Davids 2 Shopping Centre Carpark, from 7pm on Friday 2 March to 7am on Saturday 3 March.
The aim is simple: they are looking for volunteers to spend a night under the stars to highlight the issue of homelessness and raise vital funds to support their work. Sleep Easy is a national YMCA fundraising event, where people sleep rough so others don't have to. Participants are asked to brave the cold, sleep in a cardboard box for one night and get sponsored for their efforts - so please, dust off those sleeping bags and join in. It should be a challenging and eye opening experience.
Cardiff YMCA Housing Association helps vulnerable people in your community to overcome many of the worst sorts of obstacles in life. Nationally, hundreds of people will be sleeping rough to highlight the issue of homelessness and raise vital funds for the YMCA's work. Take part this year and help homeless people build a better future.
You don't have to sleep rough to get involved!
You can also make a donation to support its homeless services from £1 up to £10, by texting YMCA04 and either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 to 70070, or send in your donation, making your cheque made payable to: Cardiff YMCA Housing Association, c/o Mandy Smithson, Cardiff YMCA Housing Association, The Walk, Cardiff CF24 3AG.
