On Friday 6th March Nina and Rosie from the Rhodes Wealth Management Marketing team braved temperatures as low as 2 degrees at Derbyshire County Cricket Ground car park to spend the night under the stars in aid of YMCA Derbyshire’s annual ‘Sleep Easy’.
The purpose of the yearly event is for people to experience what it’s like to get very little sleep in vulnerable surroundings, whilst raising money. The night involves activities that best replicate what is a daily reality for many people sleeping on the streets.
Every year, the YMCA Derbyshire provides shelter and safety to over 300 individuals. They offer a range of support from training and employment to budgeting and advice on independent living.
As a result of funds raised from Sleep Easy events, they have been able to expand their accommodation capacity and employ additional Health & Wellbeing workers.
Joined by individuals and businesses from across Derbyshire, the evening was a fantastic opportunity to understand how the YMCA works to help people in the area and raise money for a very important cause.
Nina & Rosie raised a fabulous £423.76 in their fundraising efforts and would like to thank all donors for their support.
