Mortgage Sleep Out to take place tonight

Martin Greenland | 14:00 Friday 30th November 2018

Mortgage Sleep Out is set to take place tonight (30th November), with over 1,000 people from the mortgage industry sleeping on the streets to raise money for End Youth Homelessness (EYH).

Mortgage Sleep Out has already raised over £60,000, including Gift Aid, for its charity partner.

The fundraising will continue tonight with a mass sleep out around the country, with more than 70 businesses taking part in over 35 events.

The official music video for Mortgage Sleep Out’s charity single Take Me Home will feature footage from images and videos shared by those sleeping out.

“In the mortgage industry, we spend our entire working days providing homes and shelter for people across the UK,” said Rob Jupp, CEO at Brightstar Financial.

“This is our chance as one industry to unite and make every effort possible to end homelessness in the UK.

“Thousands of people around the UK are in desperate need of the support that End Youth Homelessness and other amazing charities provide.

“So, I am joining my colleagues at Brightstar to sleep out to raise awareness and raise funds.

“Either join us or donate today.”

Mark Davies, managing director of mortgage services at Link Asset Services, added: “Homelessness isn’t just a London or city issue, but just as prevalent in local communities.

“It’s a huge issue we must tackle – particularly for young people – and Mortgage Sleep Out is a fantastic opportunity for the industry to come together and get behind an excellent cause.

“Hopefully the event will raise awareness of a really difficult issue and encourage more people to get involved.

“By helping to raise money for Mortgage Sleep Out and its charity partner End Youth Homelessness, we can help give much-needed support to young people struggling with homelessness and rough sleeping.”
