All for a good cause
After the amazing success of last years Giant Howarth Sleepout, The Howarth Foundation and The Huddersfield Giants will be once again partnering to raise awareness and money for this great cause.
The sleepout will be held overnight to provide a powerful insight into a one-off experience of what it is like to spend a night outdoors. For this event we encourage businesses, business leaders (who may be looking at a Corporate Social Responsibility opportunity), families (including children), individuals, supporters, colleagues and others to take part. With participants, we ask you to fundraise a minimum of £100 for individuals (includes children) and £250 for businesses which will be shared equally between Huddersfield Giants Community Trust and The Howarth Foundation. The Howarth Foundation works with local third sector organisations to support individuals who are vulnerable on the streets to provide work packages, to make the transition back into employment more accessible for the individual. One back to work package costs a minimum of £500, which includes food parcels, clothing and travel.
HGCT uses the power of sport, working with local stakeholders to create opportunities for disadvantaged children in the school holidays by providing mainstream sports and food packages to keep them active, healthy and engaged. Together, we will create opportunities, tackling poverty and changing lives to support individuals in our local community! The event will begin from 8pm on the Friday evening where participants will meet like minded groups and individuals who all have the same passion. Once everyone has arrived plans can be made to start building their arrangements for the evening either in the concourse or brave the elements on the terrace! Guest speakers will share their experiences, hardship and the effects of homelessness/sleeping on the streets.
