Local Councillors to Spend Night on the Streets
Sleeping rough to raise money for West London YMCA
Liberal Democrat Councillors Jon Ball, Andrew Steed and Gary Malcolm will be going homeless on Friday 28th February outside Christchurch, Ealing Broadway to raise money for West London YMCA.
The initiative is called Sleep Easy this is the second year that Gary Malcolm and Jon Ball have taken part. The aim is to raise awareness of homelessness and that the YMCA do a lot of good work to reduce homelessness and inform those who are or might become homeless how to get help.
Gary Malcolm said: “I took part last year and gained an understanding of what it might be like to become homeless. It is noisy, difficult to sleep and you felt very vulnerable. I am looking to raise £500 to help the YMCA and so far have raised £400. Can you help? If you can please click the link.”
Over 1,000 people participated in last year's Sleep Easy event raising £130,000.
