Intrahost Sponsor YMCA Sleep Easy 2011

Grimsby Cleethorpes and Humber Region YMCA have participated in the YMCA Sleep Easy event that was held at Blundell Park, Cleethorpes – the home of Grimsby Town FC. Over 70 volunteers slept rough in plummeting temperatures to raise funds for youth homelessness. On average 400 homeless referrals are made in the North East Lincolnshire region every year. This figure is expected to double during 2011.

In the past 12 months, North East Lincolnshire have experienced a rising trend of unemployment and a lack of affordable accommodation.

The event started at 6pm, where the volunteers had to find space to build their shelters from cardboard and get comfy as possible. Every two hours the volunteers were offered warm refreshments. The event proven to be a huge success and was enjoyed by all.

The YMCA Sleep Easy event so far has raised almost £10,000. The Intrahost Team were delighted to hear about the event and donated £250 to the charity.
