Only two days and the temperature is plummeting !
What am I referring to ? The annual YMCA sleepout, of course. This will be my fifth year of sleeping out for a very worthwhile charity that does so much in Burton and District (Tamworth to Uttoxeter). I'm proud to be associated with them and this is just a small part of helping them. This year they're looking to establish a night shelter from Dec to March, alongside trying to get the rough sleepers into longer term accommodation and ultimately permanent housing.
As my diary eases off I'm hoping to be able to volunteer to help with that occasionally as well, as part of my circuit brief to be a witness in the town centre, and what better a witness than trying to draw alongside people in their time of need.
