“One third of care leavers experience homelessness in the first two years of leaving care”
When Bernie Gibson, Compass Community CEO heard this statistic she was horrified, so she decided to do something to help.
That’s why she will be giving up her bed and home comforts and spending a night sleeping outdoors, raising money to help people who need it most.
She will be doing this as part of CEOSleepout, a charity with the aim to fight homelessness and poverty one city at a time. Business leaders join forces for one night, giving up the comfort of a warm bed for someone who doesn’t have one. You can read more about the word the CEOSleepout do on their website.
Bernie has pledged to hit a target of £1,000, and she needs your support. Please donate anything you can, however big or small.
