£57,000 and counting raised by Propertymark team

Friday 22 November 2019

On the 21 November, a team of over 100 agents took to Queen Elizabeth Olympic park in London, as part of Propertymark’s Great Agent Sleep Out to support the homelessness charity, Centrepoint.

The dedicated team have already raised over £57,000 for the charity which supports 15,000 homeless young people a year. The Arbon Trust, Propertymark’s charitable arm, are also adding to the fantastic total and despite the challenging conditions, the total amount raised from the night inched towards a raise of £500,000.

About Centrepoint

In 2017/18 more than 103,000 young people asked their local council for help because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness. Centrepoint offers practical on-the-ground support to homeless people age 16-25, focusing on providing a safe place to stay and the building blocks for an independent life. As the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity, they operate 60 services across the UK helping vulnerable young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment. The charity is calling on people to change the story, take urgent action and end youth homelessness for good. Centrepoint’s annual Sleep Out events have been bringing people together to support this cause and raise vital money to fund their work.

'We all take our safe, warm, comfortable beds for granted so raising money for an organisation that provides direct support, allowing us to provide rooms, vital basics and training is worth all of the discomfort that we are feeling tonight. It’s a tragedy that so many young people are homeless, but the money raised tonight will go towards efforts to eradicate homelessness in the UK.'

The money raised will provide vital safety and security to vulnerable young people in our country, so it’s been fantastic to have such a large turnout.'
