YMCA HUMBER’S flagship fundraiser, Sleep Easy, returns to Grimsby’s Freshney Place Shopping Centre for the 2015 edition of the event on Friday 30th January between 6pm and 6am.Read more...
The charity’s mammoth sleep-over will be returning to the popular North East Lincolnshire venue after a phenomenal event in 2014 that attracted a record number of 80 fundraisers to sleep out in the shopping centre car park.
Over £32,000 was raised across the Humber Region through Sleep Easy 2014, which allows YMCA Humber and its partner agencies to support the needs of homeless young people in the area.
That figure means that Sleep Easy has generated over £100,000 of funds during its four-year tenure and organisers are hopeful that will continue into the landmark fifth campaign.
Jonathan Byrne, Communications Coordinator for YMCA Humber will be taking part in his fifth Sleep Easy and is looking forward to another successful event.
He said: “Sleep Easy has really entered the public conscious and it shows how the lengths the people of the Humber Region will go to, to support those less fortunate than themselves.
“To still be able to attract the number of fundraisers we do and the amount of money we raise is nothing short of a phenomenal effort from everyone concerned across the area.
“Our event at Freshney Place in Grimsby in 2014 was our most popular one yet in the town and it was easy to see why.
