Tees Active’s Managing Director takes part in the CEO Sleepout
Tees Active Managing Director, Leon Jones, will be taking part in this year’s CEO sleep out at Preston Park on Monday 12th November. Leon will be joining business leaders from across Teesside to give up the comfort of their beds and sleep outside to raise awareness and much needed funds to help fight homelessness and poverty in Middlesbrough and Stockton.
Leon explains, “The CEO Sleepout makes a huge difference to the lives of so many and recognises that we can all play a part in helping to tackle homelessness and poverty in our community. We have all been guilty at one time or another of taking the little things in life for granted and sleeping outside for one night is a very small sacrifice to make that can have a huge and lasting impact on those who need it the most.”
Though the CEO Sleepout takes part across the country, the money raised is distributed between local charities so that the funds are kept in our area and used to help people in Stockton-on-Tees and Middlesbrough.
