When Hattie, just 8 years old, got in touch to tell us she was planning to do her own ‘sleepout’ to raise money for CTS, we were blown away. Having already done a sponsored one-night sleepout for us in 2021, Hattie had decided she wanted to do even more this time around. She was going to spend 8 nights in a tent in her garden, one night for each year of her life!
Not only did Hattie complete this challenge, braving some very cold and wet weather, but she also managed to raise an incredible £1,081! These funds will go directly towards helping our young people.
“I wanted to do this because it’s not fair that some people have to sleep out in the cold,” Hattie told us. “It’s important that we all try to help each other.”
Louise, Hattie’s mum, said: “Hattie is a young lady with a big heart – she’s incredibly thoughtful and always thinks of others before herself.”
Thank you Hattie, from everyone at CTS! You are a superstar and an inspiration.
