Brooklands Team Help to Feed the Homeless in Nottingham

February 2022

 

Did you know that over 850 people sleep rough on the streets of Nottingham every night?  The number of people who are finding themselves sleeping rough for the very first time has ‘almost doubled’ since 2019 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

 

More shockingly homelessness charity Framework says an average of two new people are appearing in Nottingham every day, with around two out of every three sleeping on the streets for the first time.

 

MD Luke and Charlotte our Sales & Account Manager were shocked my these figures and volunteered for the night to help serving a much needed hot pasta meal to the homeless on the streets in Nottingham.

“After I took part in the CEO Sleepout on in November 2021 it gave me a real insight into what it was like to sleep rough for the night, its tough. Especially in winter! It is not something these people have chosen and they do it every gnight.  Helping to serve a hot meal on a freezing cold evening was just another way to support the homeless in Nottingham.”
