This will be my 6th year volunteering with the Derby Winter Nightshelter. Over the past 5 years I have volunteered alongside a group of amazing people providing a safe, warm environment for the homeless people of Derby throughout the coldest months of the year.

This year I will be joining the sleepout for the second time, braving the elements to raise money so that the Derby City Mission can continue this essential winter provision in the city.

The photo is of me at 3am last year as storm Brian passed through!

It costs £103,000 to run the Nightshelter for 4 months (Dec- March) :

£2 for a hot evening meal and breakfast

£24 for one person for one night, including 2 meals

£25 would provide a set of bedding

£70 for all the meals for a night

£853 would pay for the Nightshelter for one night - it is open in total for 121 nights

Any donations will be gratefully received :-)
