Theo Osborn | 14:14 Wednesday 31st October 2018

More than 1,000 people within the mortgage industry have pledged to participate in Mortgage Sleep Out to raise funds and awareness of homelessness in the UK.

The event will see them spend the night on the streets and Mortgage Sleep Out hopes to raise £100,000, which would provide more than 4,000 days of support for homeless young people across the UK.

Over 70 businesses have signed up to take part in events across the UK raising funds for charity partner End Youth Homelessness.

Attendees at the Finance Professional Show will have the chance to show their support at fundraising stations around the event and those who make donations of £5 or more will be entered into a raffle to win a Gen 2 Echo Show, donated by Twenty7Tec.

James Tucker, chief executive officer at Twenty7Tec, said: “Mortgage Sleep Out is a fantastic opportunity for the industry to come together and get behind an excellent cause and we’re very happy to be providing three prizes to support fundraising at the Finance Professional Show.

“Hopefully it will encourage more people to get involved and help raise money for Mortgage Sleep Out and its charity partner End Youth Homelessness.”

William Lloyd, director of operations at Brightstar, added: “People from all over the country are now taking part in Mortgage Sleep Out and it is a real boost to our charity partner End Youth Homelessness to have over 1,000 people taking part. 

“We urge everyone who has signed up to ask their friends and family to dig deep and sponsor them for spending a night outside in the cold for this important cause.”

The Mortgage Sleep Out will take place on Friday 30th November 2018, and donations for each event can be made at: www.justgiving.com/campaign/mortgagesleepout.
