Rule 5 co-founder, Jules Wilson, will be swapping the comfort of her bed for a night in the open this October, as part of CEO Sleepout Manchester.
The event, founded in 2013, strives to fight homelessness and poverty, and raise vital funds for homeless charities and other local charitable projects. Over the last three years a staggering £1m has been raised at events across the UK and this year we’re delighted to contribute, supporting Jules in her fundraising.
Speaking on the event, Jules said: “You cannot fail to be moved by the extent of the homeless situation in Manchester, there are people in need of help on every corner of every street and the problem is on the rise.
“Whilst I’ll be sleeping outdoors it is still within the security of others and will see me return to the comfort of my home 24 hours later. Over 2,000 people in Manchester don’t have that privilege. When I was approached by MASH to participate I didn’t hesitate to sign up. I’m delighted to be able to play a small part in tackling a significant issue.”
