The charity also runs two charity shops, allowing those in need a chance to learn valuable life skills.
The local community is extremely important to the team at Kiwi Recruitment, you can see the local charities and individuals that we sponsor on our Charities and Sponsorship page here.
Stonepillow is evidently a very deserving charity that Kiwi are proud to sponsor. The charity arranges a ‘Big Sleep Out’ every year, in order to raise awareness and funds for homeless people in local areas. The event gives the local community a small insight into what it would be like to sleep rough, though the charity specify that the event is not aimed at replicating homelessness. The evening involves an award being presented for the ‘Best Shelter’, as well as a BBQ and a service in the Cathedral. The cathedral service comprises of a thank you to everyone involved, and an evening of entertainment of everyone taking part in the event.
The event has won awards for Best Community Event and saw the first Bognor event this year. This year, the charity aim to raise £30,000, with every penny ‘going directly towards providing essential support to local homeless people within our community.’
You can register for just £15 per person. Each participant is encouraged to raise at least £250 per person, with the charity offering guidance on fundraising. Register now at Eventbrite.
