Our fantastic 41 fundraisers make it a night to remember raising an incredible £21,100!
The rain did not stop all night, but it didn’t dampen our supporters’ spirits who bedded down at the British Airways i360 on Monday 16 December, to raise money for young homeless people in Brighton & Hove.
Welcoming everyone to the event, Frances Duncan, our CEO said just how urgently the funds were needed: “With a 30% increase in new clients this year, we couldn’t run our services without our amazing community of supporters including local businesses Platf9rm, Cancom, Plus Accounting, Scott Baker and Search Recruitment. A big thank you to Julian who came up with the idea and Simon and Lucy at the i360 for gifting us the space to run the event.”
As well as raising vital funds, the event helps to build awareness of why CTS is needed…here are some of the comments from the night.
“Thank you so much for organising last night. It has really highlighted to me and friends the dreadful situation people can end up in.”
“Very humbling and emotional experience. I cried in my car on the way home and sat on the sofa soaked through… and just took in what we did last night. I will never forget last night and hope to be able to do more good in 2020. Thank you all for your hard work.”
A huge thank you to everyone who took part, donated or supported in other ways and to Nick Ford for the photos too.
