More than 22,000 young people could be homeless or at risk of being made homeless in England this Christmas.
We can only imagine how scared, hungry and alone these young people must feel. So in light of this frightening statistic, and as the main sponsor for the YMCA Sleep Easy Challenge next year, we’ve decided to kickstart our fundraising activities by donating our £250 Christmas card fund to Sutton Coldfield YMCA.
Every year at PLOTT, we donate the money that would otherwise be spent on Christmas cards to an amazing charity. This year we have chosen the Sutton Coldfield YMCA that helps keep local young people off the streets.
Next March the entire PLOTT team will be swapping our beds for boxes for the YMCA Sleep Easy challenge and sleeping rough for the night in Gracechurch shopping centre. We’re urging other local businesses to do the same to raise awareness and help tackle the issue of youth homelessness here in Sutton Coldfield.
So if you’re looking to spread some festive cheer, please do consider sponsoring us, or indeed joining us next March!
How do you get involved?
We have created 4 sponsor packages for local businesses, including Sutton Coldfield Chamber of Commerce members, to support the local YMCA charity to help transform the lives of disadvantaged young people in the town.
