Team Completes City YMCA's SleepEasy Challenge

05 March 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
 
On Thursday 27 February a team of six Premier Moves volunteers took part in City YMCA’s SleepEasy Challenge.

The volunteers were Dave Russinger, Phil Oram, Michelle Searle, Chris Dumoulin, Liam Russinger and Ann Beavis, all of whom spent the night sleeping rough at Old Spitalfields Market in aid of the Charity.  The annual SleepEasy event raises awareness and support for homeless young people in the Capital and over 50 people took part.

Following an office furniture donation to City YMCA through Premier’s sustainable furniture initiative, The Giving Back Project, Premier was invited to be an official event sponsor.  Premier supplied company branded cardboard boxes to every participant. Other than sleeping bags and warm clothing, these boxes provided the shelter from the elements.
