The Chief Executive of the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust (SET) is taking part in the latest CEO Sleepout next month, raising vital funds to fight homelessness and poverty in Milton Keynes.
Maralyn Smith (pictured above, right) will be giving up her bed on June 1st and sleeping out at home, as part of a national campaign organised by CEO Sleepout - a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty.
“I will be sleeping in the garden,” Maralyn told iFollow MK Dons. “I must let the neighbours know before they wonder what I’m doing!
“This is a national event and I know there are lots of people who will be doing the same. We’re looking to raise as much money and awareness as possible, for those who are rough sleeping during this time.
“We’ll also be raising money for MK Dons SET, as part of the process as well.”
Maralyn added: “I’m going to try and encourage my dogs to join me but I think it’s just going to be me out there on my own. I hope it will be warm weather but I’ve got a feeling I won’t be!”
Maralyn is aiming to raise £1,200 to split between the CEO Sleepout and the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust – click HERE to visit her Just Giving page and donate!
