Highland Bird Catches the First Sleeping Bag!

19th June 2014

Highlander employees Mollie Hopkins and Darryl Beresford are the first to sign up for the Cathedral Archer Project September sleep out.

  They will be sleeping on the new cathedral forecourt on Friday 5th September to raise funds for the Cathedral Archer Project.  They are being joined by Mollie's mother, Sally Canning from Wickes and hopefully a few more brave Sheffielder's who are up to the challenge. There are limited places to take part and experience what it would be like to sleep rough for a night.  For 12 hours all Mollie, Darryl, Sally and the other participants will have is themselves and their sleeping bags. The last sleep out in March raised over £9,000 for the homeless day centre based at the back of Sheffield Cathedral.  The event raises the profile of homelessness and helps participants understand some of the challenges and obstacles rough sleepers face.  The event surprises people, some of the comments from the March participants were, -The supporting information on homelessness was an eye opener. -How tiring it was and how much I gained from the talks in the evening.
