On a very wet, but thankfully mild night, on the 23rd of November, approximately 60 people participated in the Slough Sleepout for the Homeless.
As a result of the Sleepout, almost £20K has been raised, every penny of which will be used to fund the Slough Winter Night Shelter for the homeless. The Shelter opens from mid-December 2019 until the 5th April 2020 and typically accommodates 40-50 people, providing a warm and safe environment along with good food, companionship and care.
Will Mellor, Patron for The London and Slough Run, officially opened the event, Tan Dhesi, outgoing Labour MP, addressed the audience congratulating them on their efforts and the Mayor of Slough was also in attendance on the night.
Thank you once again for your kind support and if you need any further information regarding this event or in relation to the work of The London and Slough Run, please do not hesitate to ask.
With best regards as always.
