Fraser & Co brave the cold for charity
Last night a team of dedicated Fraser & Co colleagues took part in Centrepoint’s annual sleep out. More than a thousand supporters swapped their beds for a cardboard mat to raise money and awareness for the estimated 25,000 young people who could be at risk of doing the same this Christmas.
For the first time ever, the sleep out was held on the banks of the Thames between London landmarks Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena. The backdrop of traffic noise teamed with temperatures of 6 degrees and wind gales of 18mph offered only a taste of the stark realities of homelessness.
Centrepoint have raised a tremendous amount of money this year, exceeding their target of £400,000 with donations still coming in today. Fraser & Co are proud to make up almost £4,500 of that total, surpassing our initial goal of £3,600.
We’d like to thank everyone who has donated and helped to raise awareness for this cause. If you haven’t donated and would like to, please visit our Fraser & Co team page.
