Mortgage Sleep Out has now raised £110,000 for the End Youth Homelessness (EYH) charity.
The charity initiative — which staged 25 events across 20 UK regions with 40 different companies taking part — also saw its hashtag ‘#mortgagesleepout’ make it into the top 10 UK Twitter trends with 1.5 million impressions on 30th November 2018, the day the majority of the sleep out events took place.
“Everyone who took part in Mortgage Sleep Out and [the] charity single Take Me Home has made a tangible difference to the lives of young people who are struggling to find their feet,” said Rob Jupp, CEO at Brightstar.
“I have been overwhelmed by the success of these events and hope to be involved with more in the future.”
Nick Connolly, managing director at EYH, added: “Rob Jupp, CEO at Brightstar, said the mortgage industry would raise £100,000 to help End Youth Homelessness and it did.
“In fact, we surpassed our target with a total of £110,000 raised so far.
“This figure means that we can assist every young person who approached a local authority for help with homelessness last year.
“We hope this brilliant effort will inspire other industries to commit to working collaboratively to end youth homelessness."
