Seven from Goodman Derrick take part in LandAid's Sleep Out

A team of seven from Goodman Derrick’s real estate team slept outside for one night last week as part of LandAid’s Sleep Out, a national campaign to raise awareness and funds to help young people who are facing the same prospect.

Over the last month, 525 people from 162 companies have taken part in London, Bristol and Birmingham, to date raising over £310,000.

Hannah Rosenthal of Goodman Derrick commented:

“Although it was a cold night and a challenge for the team, when it was all done we had homes, showers and work to go to. I honestly can’t imagine what it must be like to live without that security, so thank you to LandAid for this awareness campaign and to everyone who has taken part and pledged money.”

At the time of writing The Goodman Derrick team have raised over £3,500 with pledges still coming in, if you would like to contribute you can do so at our Just Giving page:

The Goodman Derrick team was made up of Hannah Rosenthal, Mira Qerasaj, Sarah Reynolds, Remy Ormesher, Chris Berkley, Chris Langan and Dagmara Selwyn-Kuczera.

SleepOut for LandAid

This year, around 86,000 young people in the UK will be homeless. Homelessness is more than just sleeping on the streets. While this can be the most dangerous, and most visible, form of homelessness, it is just the tip of the iceberg. Homelessness means not having a place to call home, a place that is private, secure, affordable and where you have a right to stay.

LandAid is the property industry charity working to end youth homelessness in the UK. They bring together businesses and individuals from across the industry to support charities delivering life-changing projects for young people who are or have been homeless or who are at risk of homelessness.
