Geoff and James of Bishopp rough it for the night for a good cause!28th July 2017
Geoff Thompson and James Ronan, two vital parts of the Bishopp sales team decided to give up the warmth and comfort of their beds for a night all for a good cause – the Vinnies Community Sleepout.
The Vinnies Community Sleepout is not only to raise funds, but raise awareness of homelessness. Their goal is not just to service the homeless, but to bring about an end to homelessness and fight the issue of homelessness together.
They were offered a sheet of cardboard for their bed, a cup of soup and a warm drink. Geoff and James rose to the challenge and experienced what it would be like to be homeless for just one night.
An incredible 105,000 Australian’s sleep rough each night of the year, that’s one in 200 people every night. Homelessness is a growing problem that requires fundraising events like this to not only support those trying to remedy the situation but to raise awareness of the terrible conditions Australian’s face.
