April 2016 – Broxtowe Youth Homelessness works closely with Canaan Trust – a local charity who provide accommodation and support for men aged 16 – 55 years old in Long Eaton. To show our support each year we take part in The Big Sleep Out – ‘Sleep out so others can sleep in’. This year Ria Gillett (Young Person’s Worker) and three of our volunteers took part and raised money for Canaan Trust. It was a particularly rainy night but they battled through and made it until 7am the next morning. We are all very proud of our team!
