CEO Sleepout 2017 Launches

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 yearโ€™s cohorts, who raised a staggering ยฃ80,000, 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.ย 

Newcastle United Foundation utilises the funds to support its Homeless Football Club, as well as supporting community engagement programmes delivered in the community.ย  Over 80 vulnerable young people and adults who are currently facing homelessness, recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, or facing mental health issues participate in our weekly homeless football sessions.ย ย  As part of the Foundationโ€™s ongoing relationship with the England Homeless FA squad two participants had the opportunity to represent England in the Homeless World Cup last year.

The Foundation also encourages participants to get involved in their Employability programmes such as Talent Match and League Works to support their transition back into employment.

The funds raised during last yearโ€™s CEO Sleepout event are helping Changing Lives provide guidance to people in crisis, such that they avoid becoming homeless. Addressing the financial issues, that without our intervention and encouragement, service users would have great difficulty navigating the solutions available to them, which ultimately would have resulted in them being evicted/becoming homeless.

Sarah Medcalf, Development Manager at Newcastle United Foundation said: โ€œWe were completely overwhelmed by the level of support for last yearโ€™s event and weโ€™re hoping that with the support of previous participants we can beat last yearโ€™s phenomenal total.ย  Weโ€™re asking that anyone that took part asks someone else in their organisation to take over the mantle for 2017.

โ€œWeโ€™d be delighted to see new faces too, as well as anyone who thinks they could brave the elements overnight at St Jamesโ€™ Park for a second time! The funds we raise helps support our Homeless Football Team as well as our youth programmes which prepare young people for the transition to adulthood, particularly if they face barriers to education, training and employment.โ€

Stephen Bell, Chief Executiveย of Changing Lives added: ย  โ€œThis will be the fourth CEO Sleepout in Newcastle and I encourage more business leaders to take part, help us raise awareness and funds for the services needed here in the North East.ย  In this period of austerity, which has hit some of the most disadvantaged in our community hardest, please join us in this challenge, letโ€™s beat Londonโ€™s record for the highest amount raised at a Sleepoutโ€

Andy Preston from CEO Sleepout commented: “CEO Sleepout are really pleased to be working so closely with Newcastle United Foundation and Changing Lives again.

โ€œCEO Sleepout Newcastle does incredible things for the community and connects businesses with the people of the North East.
