CEO Sleepout aims to tackle homelessness

Join Hull’s big-hearted business leaders and swap your suit for a sleeping bag to brave a night out in the cold at the home of Hull Kingston Rovers, Craven Park.

Local businesspeople are sleeping out for one night on 24 October, each person pledging to raise £800 to fight local homelessness and poverty. Lots of business, community and sporting leaders will be there.

CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. Their fight is funded with money raised by big hearted business and community leaders who pledge to sleep outdoors for one night to raise awareness and sponsorship from their business contacts and friends. CEO Sleepout puts that money to work fighting homelessness and poverty in each of our host cities.

So far more than 2,000 executives have raised a staggering £2,200,000 to fight poverty and homelessness in the UK.

CEO Sleepout is community driven and is committed to supporting local charities in all of its host cities, as well as charities that work hard to combat poverty and homelessness the length and breadth of the UK.

They make sure that the majority of money raised is distributed to local charities to fight homelessness and poverty within a few miles of each CEO Sleepout, as well as those charities that work nationally.
