Sleeping on the concrete forecourt of their Medway site served as “a poignant reminder of how many homeless people in Britain spend their nights” for those who took part in last year’s Hilti’s Crash out for CRASH event.
The volunteers discovered the realities of sleeping rough when they undertook the challenge to spend a night with nothing more than a sleeping bag and a cardboard box.
Despite the discomfort, those who took part found the experience an enlightening and rewarding one and have not only planned to do it all over again this year, they have recruited even more of their colleagues!
Leading the event is Hilti’s Regional Manager (South) Darryl Davenport. Rallying his colleagues, Darryl says: “Hilti is a patron of CRASH and we now have an opportunity to GIVE SOMETHING BACK as a team and help support the great work that CRASH does.
“The purpose will be to raise as much sponsorship as possible from our colleagues, friends, families and customers as well as increase our understanding of homelessness. So even if you are unable to attend in the evening, you can really support it by raising as much money as you can.”
