SSG staff showcase solidarity in Great Tommy Sleep Out fundraiser

In a display of solidarity and commitment to supporting veterans experiencing homelessness, four committed members of the SSG Training and Consultancy team participated for the third consecutive year in The Great Tommy Sleep Out, organised in honour of the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI).

The Great Tommy Sleep Out, is a fundraising challenge that aims to raise awareness and essential funds in support of the estimated 6,000 veterans currently experiencing homelessness across the UK. Embracing the cause with empathy and determination, the SSG team joined forces to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who have served their country.

Led by Miles Redhead, Senior Health and Safety Trainer, the SSG team embraced this challenge with a shared sense of purpose. Through their participation, they aimed not only to raise funds but also to shed light on the increasing struggles young veterans face when accessing social housing and securing employment.

The Sleep Out took place on Thursday 21st March in the car park at SSG’s Head Office in Plymouth. While wrapped in their sleeping bags, the SSG members experienced a brief insight into homeless veterans’ realities.

“The Great Tommy Sleep Out was a reminder of the sacrifices made by our veterans and the urgent need to address the issue of homelessness within this community,” said Miles Redhead.

The SSG team extends their gratitude to all supporters and participants who contributed to the success of the fundraising campaign, with an estimated £600 raised so far.
