Aksia Sleeps Out for Centrepoint
For the second year running, a 14-strong team from Aksia Europe participated in Centrepoint’s Annual Sleep Out, as part of its partnership with the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity. In support of the UK charity’s 50th anniversary, Team Aksia raised funds and slept out in the cold for one night to give them a small insight into the challenges the young people face. In total, Aksia has proudly raised over £120,000 for Centrepoint over the last two years.
The amount raised by Team Aksia could enable 250 homeless young people to benefit from vital one on one counselling sessions, which offer individuals the support they need to recognize and build healthy relationships, aim to improve their confidence and support them in developing coping mechanisms to break the cycle of abuse.
A huge thank you to everyone who supported the team both in this endeavor and throughout 2019, during which the team raised additional funds through a competitive office bake-off and charity auctions, amongst other activities.
