Following PwC’s volunteering at the Booth Centre for One Firm One Day, we’re putting a team together to participate in the Manchester Sleep Out 2017 which is a fundraising event to provide much needed support for the Booth Centre.
As the name of the event suggests, the idea is that the team will be sleeping outdoors to raise awareness of homelessness and to highlight the hardships faced by homeless people. The event is on 10th November 2017 and takes place outside Manchester Cathedral.
We now have a team of 9 with sponsorship really starting to come in. In addition to which we will be PwC matched funded providing up to £250 per person, so we could potentially raise over £4,500!
Those taking part to date are:
Further details for the event are below.
It's a great cause and a huge annual event which is a crucial fundraiser for the Booth Centre (they raised £60,000 last year). It’s only £15-£20 to enter, which is to be paid by each team member. The event has a fantastic atmosphere and is very well attended.
The Booth Centre is based in the centre of Manchester and works with people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to help them plan for a better future. When PwC visited in June this year, the team saw what a great place it really is and all of the hard work which goes into the running the Centre. The Centre provides activities such as art, employment and skills sessions, assistance finding accommodation and the offer of free breakfast and lunch.
