It’s cold in Europe currently and even colder at night. While the weather seems unpleasant for us, while we lay in our warm beds at night, for homeless people it causes a serious threat to their health. A group of Airbus employees from Filton, UK swapped the comfort of their own beds to spend a night braving the cold to raise funds for the Julian House charity that support men and women facing homelessness. Mark Stewart, UK General Manager and HR Director was part of the group experiencing the freezing conditions of sleeping outside: Putting yourself in the shoes of the homeless must have been an interesting experience. What did you learn from the experience? MS: In essence you don't know how lucky you are and you take a lot of things in life for granted. Whilst you may experience some of the hardship it's nothing in reality to what genuinely homeless people have to face on a day to day basis. Did this experience change your view on the topic of homelessness? MS: Definitely over 4,500 people in the UK sleep rough most nights, many of those people end up homeless through no fault of their own and once you end up homeless it's really difficult to breakout of the cycle. Would you do it again and would you recommend it to others? MS: Yes, I am looking to organise the largest ever sleep out in Broughton in Dec. One night of discomfort can mean so much to those less fortunate than ourselves. Julian House is a homeless charity that provides more than 20 different projects across Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath & North East Somerset, Wilshire and Devon which help rough sleepers and people that would otherwise be homeless.
