OV’s Charity Sleepout

On Thursday 10 March, OV Olivia Meredith (Os 10-17 and King’s St Alban’s) will be joining some of her Carter Jonas colleagues to support LandAid’s Property SleepOut.

LandAid is a property industry charity, whose vision is to end youth homelessness in the UK. The Property SleepOut is a national event, which happens in various locations across the country; Olivia’s sleepout will be taking place in a Birmingham car park.

Speaking about the charity event, Olivia said, “I think it is important to support charities such as LandAid because many of us are fortunate enough to have a safe place to call home but so many young people don’t. Last year there were 86,000 young people in the UK who were homeless.

“This event is pushing me out of my comfort zone, with only my sleeping bag and some cardboard for a mattress, but it is for a great cause and is just one night of what many will face for weeks or maybe even months.”
