CEO SLEEPOUT

Posted in uncategorized

Monday, August 21st, 2017

As you are no doubt aware, for a few years now here at Alexander Hancock, rather than buying our clients gifts, we have been donating that money to provide Christmas Lunch for the homeless and we have been truly amazed at the positive response from you all with regards to this gesture.

This year though, I am looking to go one step further and I am taking part in an event called “CEO Sleepout” which is a charity that looks to raise money for homeless people in a number of different regions including Manchester.

I am sure we all very much aware as to how many more people are sleeping on our streets today, and quite honestly in the 21st Century this is actually a disgrace.

So I am taking my sleeping bag, a woolly hat and my gloves and sleeping outside, at Lancashire Cricket Club, on Monday October 16th from 8pm until 6am.

Not the streets of Manchester I grant you, and certainly not the same harsh and unsafe conditions the most homeless people suffer but it will go some way to understand exactly what the most vulnerable in our society go through night after night.

To this end, I am asking you to sponsor me; any amount would make a huge difference and I would be unbelievably grateful.

Many, many thanks in anticipation,
