The Bristol SleepOut will take place on Thursday, February 13th at Ashton Gate Stadium.
The SleepOut will raise valuable funds for LandAid’s mission to end youth homelessness and support local charities in the region, such as 1625 Independent People and Developing Health & Independence, both of which provide vital services for young people in Bristol.
LandAid is also working with local developer Cubex on East Street Mews, a local project which brings together a team of local businesses, charities and experts to create vital housing that will transform the lives of young homeless people in Bristol.
The events are sponsored by Hammerson and Knight Frank, with regional sponsor in TFT in Bristol. Each participant will be asked to raise over £150, all fundraising will go towards LandAid’s mission to end youth homelessness.
Paul Morrish, Chief Executive, LandAid, said: “I am delighted that we are bringing our SleepOut series to Bristol this winter. I am excited to see the impact that the property industry can make in the region and most importantly the valuable funds that we can raise. Sign up today, as places are selling fast.”
Mark Bourgeois, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Hammerson, said: “We at Hammerson are incredibly pleased to be sponsoring the LandAid SleepOut once again. By bringing the event to three locations across the country, cities in which we have substantial investments and community partners, we hope we can raise even more funds to end youth homelessness – as well as awareness of such an urgent issue.”
Alistair Elliott, Senior Partner and Group Chairman, Knight Frank, said: “Everyone at Knight Frank is so excited to be able to sponsor such a fantastic event once again. Last year’s SleepOut was a really special fundraising event which I’m sure everyone who took part in remembers, and I can’t wait to see the amazing impact that three SleepOuts will have on the issue of youth homelessness this time around.”
Alistair Allison, Managing Partner, TFT, said: “We’ve seen LandAid’s growing impact in the South West first-hand with the development of East Street Mews, a project we are proud to be involved in. It is therefore our pleasure to continue supporting its fantastic work by sponsoring the first ever South West LandAid SleepOut, held at the renowned Ashton Gate Stadium. We hope to see our friends and peers in the industry get their sleeping bags out and join us there!”
