First Mortgage (NE) raises over £3,500 in the CEO Sleepout

For the second year, we took part in the CEO Sleepout at St James’ Park in Newcastle to raise much-needed funds for homelessness and poverty in the North East.

A group of 7 of our North East team wrapped up and slept under the stars on a cold March evening in 2019, braving the elements all for a good cause.

Thanks to kind donations from our staff, clients, local businesses and family and friends, we raised over £3,500! These vital funds will make a real difference to the lives of people in need of support right here in the region.

In total, circa £43,000 was raised from the Newcastle sleepout – what a great achievement by everyone involved.

Here’s what one of our Directors Phil McGuire had to say, who took part for the second time: “There’s no better feeling than knowing we’ve raised funds which will ultimately change people’s lives. Just one night of being cold and uncomfortable can make such a difference and I’d urge anyone to consider taking part in the future – you won’t regret it.”
