Simon on the StreetsSimon on the Streets is an independent charity dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, those struggling with behavioural or mental issues, and those who are suffering from addiction. The charity offers street-based support across Leeds, Huddersfield and Bradford, providing front-line emotional and practical support for those in need, especially those with issues related to sleeping rough.

We at Enjoy Digital have been aware of the selfless work the charity does for a number of years, so when Geoff Shepherd, of Yorkshire Mafia Ltd., approached Enjoy Digital to help promote the Simon on the Streets and their 5th annual Sleep Out event, we jumped at the chance!

The annual ‘Rough Sleep Out’ event is being led with the hashtag #SleepWithSimon, and Enjoy Digital has worked pro bono for Simon on the Streets to design and develop the event website www.sleepwithsimon.co.uk/.

We held meetings at our EDquarters in the centre of Leeds for all the agencies taking part, and the enthusiasm and energy for the event from everyone involved has been amazing! We are so excited about the buzz around this year’s Sleep Out event. We are hoping to raise the number of people taking part to at least 500, where previous years have seen around 100 volunteers.

The 5th Rough Sleep Out will take place on the 25th September 2014 at the Tilt Yard, Royal Armouries. It is a great opportunity to support a worthwhile and good cause whilst meeting your corporate sociability objectives. It’s also a great team building opportunity, as learning about the struggles of rough sleepers in your local area really unites people. 100% of the funds raised by this event will go straight back into helping rough sleepers in the local areas Simon on the Streets assists.

Enjoy Digital have set up a JustGiving page, so we can assist this cause as much as possible. As a non-Government funded charity which relies solely on the generosity of public donations, every pound allows them to continue their work for those with no-one else to turn to.
