Long night ahead as care boss joins homelessness charity sleepout
Justin Hutchens, Chief Executive Officer of Darlington headquartered HC-One, the kind care company, is set to take part in Darlington’s CEO Sleepout Challenge on the 18th October, raising vital funds for local homelessness causes.
Justin, who is responsible for more than 19,000 care home beds across the UK, will swap his bedroom comforts for a sleeping bag during his stint on the streets. CEO Sleepout Darlington, which this year is being at Mowden Park RFC, will direct all money raised to charities and causes which work hard to tackle poverty and homelessness in cities across the UK.
The funds are ploughed back into the communities where the events are held, which means the money Justin raises will go towards good causes in Darlington, including local charities Changing Lives and First Stop.
Justin, and the whole of HC-One, are delighted to support such worthy local causes, and are looking forward to seeing their contribution make a big difference to their community. Being at the heart of communities they serve is central to HC-One’s ethos and mission,
Justin, who is seeking to raise £2,000, has launched a JustGiving Page and is encouraging anyone who can support him to give generously here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/justin-hutchens
HC-One Chief Executive Officer, Justin Hutchens, said:
“Coming from an organisation that makes homes for vulnerable older people, I’m honoured to take part in this meaningful opportunity and to experience homelessness in a very personal way.
“The CEO Sleepout is a fantastic initiative that raises vital funds and awareness for an important cause. Homeless is an issue many of us will see every day, but it is only through partnership and building strong community support networks that we will ensure everyone has access to the safe, dry home so many of us take for granted.
“The fight against homelessness and extreme poverty is a crucial one, and I’m proud to be playing my part and supporting the local Darlington community who have been so welcoming and supportive to me as a new resident, and HC-One as an organisation.”
