On today's show we heard from Mary Green, who was calling from an organisation called V Involved. This is a government scheme to encourage young people to volunteer in their local communities. She also told us about an event called Sleep-Easy taking place next week and below is a message from Mary with more details:
Sleep-Easy - Friday 26th February, from 7pm to 7am on Saturday, at Vicarage Road Stadium. It's a sponsored sleep-out toraise funds for Watford YMCA and raise awareness of homelessness. The 'rough sleepers' will sleep in the Rookery End concourse, so it will be a totally safe enclosed environment, with no rain or snow falling on us, but it will be COLD!
There will be music, hot drinks and snacks(courtesy of Starbucks, Clas Ohlson, Sainsburys throughout the night, a story-teller, and a Best Dressed Cardboard Box competition, with boxes donated by Blue Box Storage and a prize donated by John Lewis.
People wishing to volunteer for this challenge shoudl visit the website at www.vinvolvedherts.com, or ring me on my mobile - 07989 502269; or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide a sponsorship form and a list of advice and instructions about what to bring etc.
Thank you very much and hope to see lots of volunteers at the Sleep Easy!!!
