Steeles Law supports The Benjamin Foundation Sleep Out Fundraiser 2019

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we will be supporting The Benjamin Foundation’s largest fundraiser. A group of senior staff members will be spending the night of Thursday 14th November in a car park, with little but a sleeping bag and cardboard to keep warm, as part of the Norwich Sleep-Out 2019.

As part of the Steeles Law 50th Anniversary a focus has been placed in giving back to the local communities who have been instrumental in supporting the firm over the last 50 years. Charity initiatives so far have included coffee mornings, sponsorship of the Theatre Royal Get Together Group for the over 55s, CSF Hadrian’s Wall Challenge and pro bono work.

Andrea Smith, Marketing Executive said, ’I am delighted that we are supporting The Benjamin Foundation Sleep Out, I have been a supporter of the charity for many years and grateful that so many of my colleagues are taking on this challenge’.

Spending the night at Norwich City Football Club with over 100 other supporters of the charity will be a ‘humbling experience’ for those taking part said Andrea who took part in one of the first events in 2016. ‘While we acknowledge it won’t be the same as the real hardship faced by rough sleepers, it will help raise much need funds for our region and support The Benjamin Foundation mission to end youth homelessness.

‘Could you spend one night outside so others don’t have to?’ This the question The Benjamin Foundation asked us, and one which Oliver Brabbins, Richard Bailey, Nicki Ramsbottom, Michelle Trenerry, James Conley, Denise Traube and Lorraine Ashton said that together they will take on the challenge. Together they aim to raise over £700. The team fundraising page in now live (https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SteelesLaw1), to follow their experience on the night, look out for updates on the company Twitter and Facebook pages.

Chris Elliott, Marketing and Fundraising manager said ‘We are delighted to have a team from Steeles Law taking part in our Norwich Sleep Out for the first time. Their fundraising will help us support vulnerable young adults in Norfolk and prevent them becoming homeless.’
