Bishop Tony taking part in CEO Sleepout
Bishop Tony Porter will be taking part in the second CEO Sleepout at Meadow Lane on October 5th.
He will be joined by club owner Alan Hardy and other business and community leaders who will sleep at the side of the pitch to raise money for the homeless.
Notts County Football in the Community is leading the project in partnership with the Trent Bridge Community Trust; last year 80 people slept out at Meadow Lane and raised £46,000.
West Bridgford’s The Friary, a drop-in centre for homeless and unemployed people, and Emmanuel House support centre on Goosegate, will be the project’s beneficiaries this year.
CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. It raises money by encouraging executives to sleep outdoors for one night and to raise sponsorship from their business contacts and friends.
