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
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
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.
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.

Because everyone needs the opportunity to play rugby
We often think homelessness is just a London thing - it’s not .. it affects Bath and Somerset profoundly
More and more young people are in unsafe accommodation or sofa surfing. This is a sad reflection on Bath society in 2019.
About 5 years ago I heard that cuts were being made to youth services. Since then I have looked for a way to do my part to help in any direction possible. So sleeping in the cold, for a night a year is the opportunity I was looking for.
To help those young people less fortunate than my daughter and don't always have a safe place to sleep
