MD Luke Harvey Takes Part in the CEO Sleepout

Could you imagine sleeping outside in the UK in November with nothing more than a sleeping bag?

 

On the 11th November 2021 Luke Harvey, Brooklands MD did exactly that swapping his warm bed and comfy pillow for a night under the stars to raise money for homeless in Nottingham.

 

Luke was shocked by the number of homeless people on the street of Nottingham and wanted to make a difference.  He decided to spend an unforgettable night under the stars, sleeping alongside fellow business leaders who united to fight homelessness.

“It is great to raise some funds to support the homeless and to get a taste for what it is like to sleep rough. Things like this keep you grouded and I think it is important for us all to make a conscious effort to give back when we can.”

Sleeping on the ground for a night may be a little cold and uncomfortable, but it will be worth it because you could change somebody’s life, and inspire you to lead with a greater purpose.

Luke raised an amazing £1,165, well over his £1,000 target.
