Business and community leaders will sleep out in a city car park to raise funds for people experiencing homelessness.
In the lead up to the event, five participants delivered a Fred’s Van meal service to gain a better understanding of how some of the funds raised during the Sleepout support the community’s most vulnerable.
BankSA chief executive Nick Reade, who raised $173,000 last year and was the highest fundraiser nationally, will sleep out for the sixth time. He also volunteered for Fred’s Van, along with first timer Bronwyn Masters, from Silverchain/RDNS, Rachid Malik (RM Williams), and Jake Hall-Evans and Stephen Jones (Wilson Parking).
“As leaders, we have a responsibility to give back to our communities, and support people who are disadvantaged,” Mr Reade said. “This goes beyond sleeping out for one night.”Jump to next article
