Anglo Scottish takes up the fight to help end homelessness

Anglo Scottish’s David Foster and Dan Reavley are supporting CEO Sleepout and spending the night “sleeping rough” outside in March to raise money to help end homelessness.

According to homeless charity Shelter, 274,000 people in England are homeless, including 126,000, and this figure is only likely to rise in the coming months.

This depressingly, startling statistic is just one of the reasons that have motivated Anglo Scottish to take up the call to action and help fight to end homelessness.

What is the CEO Sleepout?

CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness throughout the UK. The charity arranges for business leaders to “sleep rough” for a night to raise money and raise awareness of homelessness. The events take place in cities around the country and the money raised is distributed to local charities to fight homelessness and poverty within a few miles of each CEO Sleepout event, as well as those charities that work nationally.

To date, the charity has raised over £2.7 million to fight against homelessness and poverty.

The top 10 beneficiaries (in 2020) were:

CEO Sleepout in Newcastle

The CEO Sleepout will take place in St James Park on 24 March 2022 (a very chilly time of year up here in the North East!).

So far, the event has over 99 participants who are rolling out their sleeping bags, including Newcastle United legend and local hero Shola Ameobi.
