Big Summer Sleepout

Aldershot Town FC host local charity fundraiser

Following on from the success of last year's event staged at the EBB stadium, Step by Step will be holding their Big Summer Sleepout on the night of 29th/30th June at Aldershot Town Football Club.

Step by Step are a local organisation (based in Crimea Road, Aldershot), who work with young people aged 16-25 through a structured combination of services including accomodation, support, training and counselling. The Big Summer Sleepout is an event designed both to raise funds and awareness of those young people who are homeless.

Richard Low, Chief Operations Officer at Aldershot Town, is one of many who will spend the night on the terraces of the EBB Stadium. He said, "I am delighted to be personally participating in such a worthy cause. Step by Step is doing superb work in our community, often without the level of publicity it deserves and is really helping to turn round the lives of many young people in this area. Everyone deserves a chance to have a future and Step by Step continues to make that possible for some of those who have not been on the right track.

"Initiatives like this Sleepout help to not only raise much needed funding but also to raise awareness of the issues that affect many young people and how Step by Step can help them.

"I am very proud that Aldershot Town FC can play its part by hosting this event and I hope that everyone who hears about the Sleepout will either participate themselves or sponsor someone who is."
