Get Involved The CEO Sleepout
Newcastle United Foundation is excited to confirm that the CEO Sleepout at St. James’ Park will return in 2017, taking place on Thursday 9th March.
Tyneside executives, joined by Newcastle United Managing Director Lee Charnley, will once again raise funds for a range of remarkable homelessness charities when they sleep out for the night aiming to beat the fundraising efforts of last year’s cohorts, who raised a staggering £80,000, making the Newcastle Sleepout the largest outside London.
Funds raised during the sponsored sleepout will be split between Newcastle United Foundation, Changing Lives and CEO Sleepout UK.
Newcastle United Foundation uses the funds to support its Homeless Football team, as well as supporting its community programmes.

"This will be the fourth CEO Sleepout in Newcastle and I encourage more business leaders to take part, helping us raise awareness and funds for the services needed here in the North East. In this period of austerity, which has hit some of the most disadvantaged in our community hardest, please join us in this challenge - let's beat London's record for the highest amount raised at a Sleepout."Stephen Bell, Chief Executive of Changing Lives
