Schofield Sweeney Supports Simon’s Sleepover

The West Yorkshire law firm is headline sponsor of charity for the homeless Simon on the Streets, and will be participating in the charity’s Sleepover.

Residents and businesses are invited to join the event on Friday 19 November and settle down for the night on their sofas, floors and in their gardens. Participants will include the charity’s employees, who give support to the homeless and vulnerable people in Leeds, Bradford and Kirklees.

Schofield Sweeney has offices in Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield and has supported Simon on the Streets since 2017, helping to fundraise via previous sleep-outs, bake sales, bike rides, and business events such as networking and golf day. The law firms’s Marketing Manager, Ann-Marie Keighley:

“Each year we hold a staff vote to decide which charities we support, and Simon on the Streets came top of the list again in 2021. We have offices in Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield, the same area the charity covers, and our team visibly sees the people affected by homelessness daily. The work the charity’s outreach workers and volunteers undertake is incredible and we are delighted to do what we can to support the charity, which offers so much to individuals at a time when they need it more than ever.”

Simon on the Streets’ CEO, Natalie Moran:

“We’re seeing more demand for our support and as we approach winter, it is a critical time to reach vulnerable people in need on our streets. With the continued uncertainty of Covid-19 we were unable to hold our annual sleepout, but the support shown by businesses such as Schofield Sweeney to get involved in Simon’s Sleepover and allow us to continue our work has been phenomenal. Schofield Sweeney has been a generous supporter of ours over recent years and we’re truly grateful to them for coming on board as our headline sponsor for this event, combatting the issues of homelessness.”

Further support comes from businesses in the region including John Sisk & Sons, Zeal and Weightmans taking part in Simon’s Sleepover.
