Southern Sheeting Raises £800 for Crawley Open House in Big Sleep Out

Building materials supplier Southern Sheeting has raised £800 for homeless charity Crawley Open House during a Big Sleep Out on 08 April.

Southern Sheeting has more than tripled its original fundraising target of £250.

Employees slept outside in the yard at the East Grinstead business to raise money for the charity and to raise awareness about the challenges faced by homeless people.

A total of 10 employees, including managers, drivers, sales, administrative and yard staff, all tried to put their heads down with nothing but cardboard for a bed.

The team only had two hours of sleep as the temperature dropped to minus figures and they woke up to ice on their belongings.

Tony Hobbs, Southern Sheeting’s Managing Director, said: “As a business which supplies roofing materials, putting a roof over people’s heads is very close to our hearts, as is supporting a local charity which does amazing work.

“After spending the night sleeping outdoors, we all have a new understanding of how hard it is to get a good night’s sleep, which is vital to be able to cope with the challenges life throws at you.”
