We are asking all of our business executives to target themselves with raising £1000 (including gift aid). It can be done  – one of our Nottingham fundraisers managed to smash his target of £2000 in just 3 days!

Thank you for signing up for the CEO Sleepout at Preston Park Museum. You will be part of a unique event which will see some of Middlesbrough’s finest business leaders coming together to make a difference for Teesside’s homeless and those in the grip of poverty.
