Onsite tenants, NCFE’s sponsored sleep out raises over £2000 for the Princes Trust as staff sleep overnight at Quorum Sports Courts
On Friday 9th October 7 colleagues swapped home comforts for a night sleeping outdoors on the Sports Courts onsite.
The sleep out is just one of the activities that the Newcastle based organisations’ Shine Team – a leadership programme designed to develop upcoming mangerial talent- has organised as part of The Princes Trust Million Makers Challenge.
NCFE Communications leader, Lindsay Plumpton said ‘We came up with the idea to hold a sponsored sleep out so that we could experience just some of the hardships that many unemployed young people go through on a daily basis. It was a cold night but luckily we missed any rain! We’re pleased to have raised over £1000 in sponsorship which was matched by NCFE giving us a total of £2000 raised for the Princes Trust Million Makers.
Quorum Events Manger, Laura Barber added ‘when NCFE approached us about this event, we were happy to help – its a great cause and a different approach to fundraising – we’re really impressed with what they’ve accomplished’
