Circle Directors to sleep rough for charity

Steve and Jen will be joining over 80 professionals at the Cardiff CEO Sleepout on Thursday 27th March braving the elements to spend a night sleeping rough in the grounds of Cardiff Castle.

Giving up their personal time and comfort, they will be sleeping outdoors in any weather conditions to raise as much money as possible, with the proceeds being distributed to local charities.

The CEO SleepoutUK is a new and energetic charity with its aim to capture the connections and influence of local business executives to help fight the cause of homelessness and poverty across the regions where they live, work and do business.

The money that is raised from the event will be distributed to charitable organisations that:

  • Address the hidden causes of homelessness by supporting those most at risk

  • Help individuals progress from homelessness to a more secure and positive future

  • Support people who are homeless and those that are faced with severe hardship

The CEO Sleepout Cardiff will be looking to build on the success of two previous events that have raised thousands of pounds in the UK last year. A similar event held in Newcastle last October raised more than £56,000, while the first event held in Middleborough last March raised more than £30,000.
