With the generosity of our sponsors we’ve smashed our initial target of £2000 for the YMCA Sleep Easy Challenge next month.

This has only been possible with the help of fellow Chamber members including Burley Browne, Power Minerals, On Logistics, Set and Match, Felton Consult, Midas Recruitment and Cookes Furniture.

As the main sponsor of the Sleep Easy Challenge, and being a creative agency, we put our collective heads together to come up with a stunt to help raise awareness of the challenge at the recent Chamber of Commerce SLT Awards.

In true PLOTT style we wanted to create something memorable so we built an impressive tower of boxes showcasing all our sponsors’ logos. As part of accepting generous donations we are always keen to provide our sponsors with as much positive PR as possible in thanks for supporting us to reach our target.

The stunt certainly worked and generated a lot of intrigue and interest on the night. We were thrilled to raise over £2000 on the night for the YMCA and St Giles Hospice.

Sleep Easy Information Pack

Having teenage children myself I can only imagine how frightening having no home must be. It’s quite shocking to hear the number of young people with no fixed address, particularly in an affluent area like Sutton, so we’re delighted to be supporting the PLOTT team. We’re even joining them on the night to help raise awareness.

We’d like to say a huge thanks to Andrew Davies at Cookes Storage for supplying the boxes, Phil Reely at Set and Match for printing the stickers, and all our generous sponsors; GComms, TruTac, Taronis of Birmingham, and tmWare.

We’re urging other local businesses to get involved. You can either join us and swap your beds for a boxes and sleep rough in Gracechurch shopping centre on Friday March 27th, or if you can’t join us on the evening, we are encouraging businesses to donate.

We’ll be creating a similar, but bigger, box tower on the actual evening. So If you’d like to see your business represented at the event with over 300 people expected to attend, we have created 4 packages and set up a Virgin Giving page.
