Six members of staff from Cradley Heath based Repose Furniture recently took part in the annual Big Brum Sleep Out which is arranged by Birmingham based charity St Basils and took place in the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral. In total, the team raised £720 for St. Basils.
“Just one night sleeping out made us all fully appreciate the difficulties so many homeless people have to face every night and I hope our donation went some way to making Christmas more comfortable to the people this fantastic charity supports throughout the year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported us by making a donation” commented Customer Services Manager Emily Husband who organised Repose’s involvement.
St Basils houses over 1000 young people in Birmingham and over 1500 across the West Midlands in its 34 supported accommodation schemes. The charity also helps thousands more young people with face to face support and advice, but due to government cuts these services are at risk. St Basils has to raise £1 million this year and the BIG Brum Sleep Out is its largest event of the year.
