Sleepout participants & volunteers, along with sponsors, staff and trustees were invited by Ben Robinson, President of YMCA Burton to attend Pirelli Stadium for the Sleepout fundraising reveal. On arrival, guests were offered a warm welcome, hot drink and a mince pie plus Christmas carols played on the harp by Effie Bowman and her music teacher  Helen. There was the opportunity to listen to the experience of several sleepout participants before the grand reveal of how much was raised. On Wednesday 19th December, the amount declared was £48,630 but following several additional donations from supporters and local businesses, the grand total raised, for the 10th Annual Sleepout was £50,104.31. To everyone who took part, shared our story or sponsored us in any way, you have all helped to make a difference. We are absolutely delighted with the amount raised and send heartfelt thanks to all.
