The awards dinner was a perfect fundraising opportunity for CEO Sleepout, a charity that raises funds and awareness to fight homelessness and poverty. And, we’re delighted to say that as a group we’ve already raised over £6,000. Later this month, our CEO Clare Roberts will be taking part in the Manchester CEO Sleepout, joining 100 of Manchester’s business leaders, giving up a night of comfort to sleep outside.
