We support ‘World Homeless Day’ at Crescent Motoring Services in Burton.

We always support ‘World Homeless Day’ – On the 10th of October 2023 people around the world  marked World Homeless Day in many varied ways. This changes the lives of people experiencing homelessness in their local community. So, take a look here to see how the day is portrayed. It’s quite moving.

The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to the needs of people who experience homelessness locally. It provides opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness. This is while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides – to end homelessness through improved policy and funding.

At Crescent Motoring Services we are very passionate about contributing to this charity in Burton on Trent because they provide support to the homeless people in and around the Burton area.👌

The YMCA in Burton believe that everyone deserves a place to call home and to be supported in times of crisis. This is why they are our chosen charity and Crescent Motoring Services feel passionate about providing our support.

YMCA ‘Sleepout’

On 10th November 2023 the YMCA in Burton are organising their  YMCA ‘Sleepout’ at the ‘Pirelli Stadium’ at Burton Albion Football Club in Burton. Everyone is invited to ‘spend a night under the stars’ in a cardboard box to appreciate what it is like to sleep out, as if you were homeless.

The Burton on Trent community bring their partners, families, work associates and even pets to feel humbled about the YMCA Support in Burton. It is their biggest fundraiser of the year. Boxes are sponsored by local businesses and it’s a really well turned out event. If you want to see more, and see images from last year’s Sleepout night, click here and book your ticket for two weeks time!

This year, on behalf of Crescent Motors, one of our team, Sarah, and her husband Brian are sleeping ‘rough’ all night representing us.  Good luck to them and anyone else sleeping out for this fantastic charity. If you can sponsor them and help raise funds for the YMCA, please feel free on this link here to the ‘Just Giving Page’.
