This weekend, three local ladies will be sleeping out in Morpeth Market Place to raise awareness and funds for Changing Lives.
Rhona Dunn, Alison Byard (former Mayor of Morpeth) and Caroline Pryer (Headteacher of Ponteland Middle School) will brave the unpredictable British weather with a 24-hour sleepout in the town centre on Saturday 26th August and Sunder 27th August.
Their efforts will raise money for Changing Lives and help support vulnerable people in the region, including those sleeping rough, fleeing domestic abuse or overcoming life-threatening addictions.
Changing Lives are highly active in Northumberland. Our services spread from Berwick to Blyth, and include accommodation for vulnerable adults who would otherwise face homelessness, and successful drug and alcohol recovery services.
We couldn’t provide our high-quality services without the funds and support of people like Rhona, Alison, Caroline and YOU!
To support them in their fundraising efforts, please pop some pennies (or pounds) in their collection buckets if you see them, or text ‘MORP17’ followed by the amount you would like to donate to 70070.
