Swanswell's team takes part in the Big Sleep Out on 30 November 2012
Team members from Swanswell joined over 400 people to raise thousands of pounds to help prevent homelessness in Birmingham after taking part in the ‘Big Sleep Out.’
On Friday 30 November, volunteers from Swanswell – a national charity which wants to achieve a society free from problem alcohol and drug use – were among hundreds of others from across the city who ‘roughed it’ for the night as part of the St Basils event.
They slept in cardboard boxes in Digbeth overnight as temperatures fell below freezing to help St Basils raise money for young people who are homeless and to raise awareness of homelessness issues to the wider community.
Team members from Swanswell were supporting St Basils and the national charity’s own projects to help achieve a society free from problem alcohol and drug use.
