Aksia sleeps out for Centrepoint

Related Topics

For the second year running, a 14-strong team from Aksia Europe participated in Centrepoint’s Annual Sleep Out, taking the total raised by the specialist research and portfolio advisory for the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity to GBP120,000 over the past two years.

In support of the UK charity’s 50th anniversary, Team Aksia slept out in the cold for one night to gain a small insight into the challenges faced by homeless young people.

Centrepoint’s Director of Fundraising, Di Gornall, says: “Aksia has shown amazing commitment fundraising for Centrepoint and helping to positively change the lives of the young people we support. After raising GBP72,000 at last year’s Sleep Out and topping the fundraising leaderboard, they are already nearing the GBP50,000 mark for this year. We have loved working with Aksia and everyone at Centrepoint is incredibly grateful for their hard work, support and dedication to ending youth homelessness.”

The amount raised by Team Aksia could enable 250 homeless young people to benefit from vital one-on-one counselling sessions, which offer individuals the support they need to recognise and build healthy relationships, aim to improve their confidence and support them in developing coping mechanisms to break the cycle of abuse.

Other Aksia charity fund-raising initiatives include a competitive office bake-off and charity auctions. Sleep Out donations can still be made on Aksia’s Just Giving site.
