To be blunt and upfront I’m after your money!
Because on 11th October I’ll be joining some of Nottingham’s most compassionate business people to do something amazing!
Together we will be showing solidarity with those who need our help in Nottingham and raising awareness of some big issues.
Please will you help me to raise money and support priceless work fighting homelessness and poverty in Nottingham?
Your support will be massively appreciated by me and I’ll be delighted to tweet about you, give you (and your business) a plug on my Facebook page and I’ll be posting updates on LinkedIn too.
All you have to do is make a donation here
All I have to do is sleep outside on what’s destined to be a cold and damp night!
Have you noticed how much colder it’s getting night by night this last week? Brrrr!!!!
(you have to realise when I signed up to do this on a balmy summer’s night a couple of months ago it seemed like a really good idea!)
Anyway it’s getting close to Goose Fair time and I can feel what I always call ‘Goose Fair weather’ kicking in . . . it’s going to be cold pitch side that’s for sure!
Donate here – thank you so much!
Now I totally appreciate participating in this year’s CEO Sleepout is only a token nod to what it must really be like to be homeless and I do have the luxury of being back in my warm and cosy home the following night, but I am giving up that luxury for one night and sleeping out pitch side (no tent even) at Meadow Lane Stadium whilst you’re tucked up under your warm and cosy under your duvet!
It will be cold.
And will be damp.
And it might even rain!
And . . .
you getting the idea this isn’t going to be very comfortable (understatement) aren’t you?
So, surely, you think that’s worth of a quid or two? Please.
Please help me!
Please give what you can – here’s the link again to donate
I know I’m being blunt asking for money like this, but to put it bluntly, money is everything in supporting the charities that will benefit from your generosity.
The more I (and my fellow sleepouters) can raise the more people can be helped. Simples!
Every £50 can make a big difference to somebody – and help them to turn their life around.
£5, £10, £15, £20, £30, £40 . . . it all makes a difference.
Since 2010 people affected by homelessness has risen dramatically. People can become homeless for a number of reasons, often a life event such as a relationship breakdown, leaving care or prison. These events, without support, can put people on a downward spiral culminating in homelessness.
The CEO Sleepout has partnered with Notts County Football In the Community, Emmanuel House and The Friary and will use the funds raised from CEO Sleepout Nottingham to continue their programme of support to the homeless and those at a crisis point who, without assistance, are highly likely to be evicted and become homeless.

Thanks so much!
Oh, and I promised a P.S. and something to help you
As we’re approaching the end of 2018 if you want to get ahead before the start of the new year I will be pleased to reduce my fee for a Conversation with Deborah by the amount you donate to the CEO Sleepout. Past clients have used a Conversation with Deborah to focus on a specific project or challenge or just to get some clarity on something rather than signing up to my more in depth programmes which generally run over 3, 6 or 12 months. This could be anything from useful introductions, networking strategy, a time audit, a confidence boost ahead of a presentation, performance or personal challenge, or a strategy session. The conversation is up to you! If this is something you would be interested in do get in touch
