    Sleeping out for charity

    Hi People.

    I am sleeping rough on Thursday 26th September, trying to raise money for Simon on the streets a charity that helps homeless people that have slipped through the net.

    They do an amazing job. Please help with a small donation, my just giving page is here

    Well done Vince, as someone with a roof over my head on that night, the least I can do is support you.

    Thanks Steve, you're a star. Just hope it's not raining on the night. I can keep the cold out (and I will be doing by wearing my flying suit), but the rain is another matter altogether.

    Hey Vince, I had a look at the Charity's web site - the work they do is exactly the kind of effort I support - I tip my hat to you for bringing their work to our attention. I hope the night of the 26th isn't too cold and that you might get some kindred souls in the area joining you for at least part of the night!

    Thanks Marilyn for your support. I am in the BNI (business network international) and most of my group are joining me on the sponsored sleep out.

    We've got a BNI meeting at 07:00 the following day. There'll be a few stinky people there I'm sure.

    It's in Leeds somewhere Andy. I'm going on the soup run with them tomorrow night.

    Thanks for the offer of the suit, I'll be taking my flying suit (Need to go get it from Rufforth) and a bivvy bag (waterproof body bag)

    Whichever Steve it was who donated, thanks. You're a good egg.

    Having slept out rough a few times in my youth, I don't envy you Vince.

    I'm starting to think you are a bit of a nutter, what with this and walking around with half moustaches and the like. But a nice one.
