Usually, property industry charity LandAid calls on industry folk to sleep out on the street for one night as part of its annual campaign to raise awareness of homelessness – and the funds to combat it.

Sleepout for LandAid

Obviously, that’s not possible this year, so it has come up with a brilliant alternative: instead of encouraging people to sleep on the streets, it is asking them to stay a tad closer to home… more specifically in their back gardens or in the absence of a garden, their patio, balcony or even the kitchen floor.

LandAid chair Rob Bould will be doing his bit next Thursday for this year’s ‘sleep out at home’, which aims to raise £150,000, by heading with his sleeping bag into his garden for the night. “Any donation big or small will be gratefully received,” he says.
