We believe that nobody should have to sleep outside, in the cold, without warmth or support and want to do what we can to raise money and awareness to prevent this in the place we live.
Too many young people have nowhere to sleep at night so I thought I would help if I can, especially now that winter is drawing in.
The work Bath Rugby Foundation do in providing opportunities to play rugby to those that may not otherwise be able to is fantastic
Homelessness is on the increase and it is not acceptable in this day and age.Anything we can do to help is better than sitting around ignoring the problem.
I'm shocked by just how many young people in Bath are in a position where they don't have a safe and secure place to sleep - spending the night out in the cold is the least we can do
Having 2 teenage sons I feel incredibly aware that life could change at any moment for us. Supporting the 'Rec Sleep Out' will give me just a small indication of how it feels to spend one night on a cold, concrete floor and be at one with the elements. We take for granted the daily luxuries we have in life and I think this one night will show me how those less fortunate than myself live.
The Bath Rugby Foundation does incredible work in the local area and we wanted to continue to show our support and help the team continue their great work.
Because everyone needs the opportunity to play rugby

Youth Poverty is a major problem in the UK and especially in Bath. As part of my role within Gallagher working with Bath Rugby and The Foundation I want to help make the lives of the younger generation better so they can achieve their full potential.
