Sleepout Sistas

Burton businesses support YMCA Sleepout

It’s great to see how Burton’s business community has rallied to support local charity, Burton Upon Trent and district YMCA with its major, annual fundraising drive – the #Sleepout17.

As funding to this vital charity has been cut in recent years, it increasingly relies on the public and the business community to support its work to help the homeless and families in crisis.

This year a record 188 people signed up to take part in the sleepout. Among them were Richard Lloyd, Chair of Burton Business Club, and a host of women from the Burton Women In Rural Enterprise business network group, calling themselves SleepoutSistas.
