Well, kind of.
Along with a group of about 50 students from 3 Exeter schools I slept outside experiencing a tiny bit of what life is like for homeless people. We were working to raise funds for Exeter YMCA through their SleepEasy fund-raising campaign which has seen adults sleeping out at Exeter United’s St James’ Park in March and next week sees church youth groups doing the same. The Y does some awesome work in Exeter and is well worth your support. As government funding dries up they’re not rolling back their work but pushing it forward under the leadership of Peter Stephenson and his team.
Great evening…although some students don’t seem to understand the usefulness of sleep!
