HomeWorks’ Jason Shepherd-Bradshaw braved the cold as part of a sponsored sleep out at Bradford Football Club to raise valuable funds for homeless charity Centrepoint.
Yorkshire Housing has now matched the amount of funds that Jason raised, with the grand total now standing at £666.50. He was recently presented with the cheque by Yorkshire Housing’s chief executive Mervyn Jones.
Jason, who works as an electrical fixed wire testing team leader, faced the cold at Bradford City Football ground for the second year running to raise funds and awareness for Centrepoint. He was joined hundreds of other fundraisers sleeping out in the west stand of the stadium.
Yorkshire Housing’s Jason Shepherd-Bradshaw said: “I’m really thrilled to raise valuable funds for such a worthy cause and I’m really grateful that Yorkshire Housing has matched the amount I raised.
“Centrepoint really help the young and homeless to get back into society. You just need to walk through Leeds to see the problem of homelessness at first hand.”
