Jules Wilson backs CEO Sleepout Manchester

22 August 2017

Rule 5 co-founder, Jules Wilson, will be swapping the comfort of her bed for a night in the open this October, as part of CEO Sleepout Manchester.

The event, founded in 2013, strives to fight homelessness and poverty, and raise vital funds for homeless charities and other local charitable projects.  Over the last three years a staggering £1m has been raised at events across the UK and this year the MediaCityUK-based PR agency is contributing by supporting Jules in her fundraising.

Speaking on the event, Jules said: “You cannot fail to be moved by the extent of the homeless situation in Manchester, there are people in need of help on every corner of every street and the problem is on the rise.

“While I’ll be sleeping outdoors it is still within the security of others and will see me return to the comfort of my home 24 hours later.  Over 2,000 people in Manchester don’t have that privilege. When I was approached by MASH to participate I didn’t hesitate  to sign up.  I’m delighted to be able to play a small part in tackling a significant issue.”

CEO Sleepout Manchester takes place on 16th October.  You can support Jules in her aim to raise over £1,000 here and find out more about the event at http://www.ceosleepoutuk.com/
