Sleeping Out For Charity


A familiar face at Swanwick Marina, Boatyard Supervisor, Shona Brooks is taking part in The Big Sleep Out on 30th November to support both the Saints Foundation and The Big Issue Foundation.  For one night only she will be sleeping outside with just a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard for company to highlight the reality of sleeping rough and that too many people across the UK have to survive this night after night.

Shona said about her charitable feat "With only a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard for comfort, I expect it will be tough but I will be safe in the knowledge that I will get to go back to my warm, comfy bed the following evening; too many people don’t have that luxury, unfortunately, which is why I want to help.  If you would like make a donation, please visit my page for all the details at www.virginmoneygiving.com/ShonaBrooks 

Congratulations to Shona for her perseverance and if you would like to donate towards two great causes, please follow the link.
