Fairfield trio join Sleep in the Park
Housing co-operative group joins growing number of social landlords to take part in fundraiser.
Fairfield Housing Co-operative’s Corporate Manager Susan Bell, Finance Officer Joyce Clark and Housing Officer Helen Ross are the latest housing professionals to sign up to Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park in Princess Gardens, which is taking place on 9 December.
The trio, with the team name of ‘Minus Three Degrees’ are all keen to help the charity with some slight trepidation, with temperatures set to plummet over the next week.
Susan Bell, Fairfield Corporate Manager, said:
“The stresses and strains that we all have at Christmas time pale into insignificance when you have no roof over your head.”
Joyce Clark, Fairfield Finance Officer, said:
“I’m blessed to have never been in that position so it’s giving a tiny bit back.”
Helen Ross, Fairfield Housing Officer, added:
“Raising awareness for homelessness is a tremendous cause, and the sleep out is just the way to do it.”
Grant Ager, Fairfield’s Chief Executive, said:
“We are all, as a group, hugely proud of the Minus Three Degrees who have over 40 years’ housing experience between them and are delighted to support the sleep out.”
