Truthfal’s Else Welde and Chloe Sweet spent the night sleeping outside at the annual ‘Sleep Out’ fundraiser event at the Eden Project. This is an even that aims to raise money for homelessness as well as raising awareness. Participants could choose between the two organisations St Petroc’s Society and Amber Foundation, all aiming to raise £200 each.
Else gives you an overview of the event, talks to the charities, as well as interviews a few people that once were homeless – but no longer are – all thanks to Amber and St Petroc’s.

We also interviewed Claire Miller, community fundraiser for The Amber Foundation, one of the charities that will benefit from the Sleep Out event and aims to tackle youth homelessness in the West Country. Watch here:
