Leeds Met food fayre kicked started the week and sleeping rough for the Simon on the Streets charity really was a tough thing to do during the week.
I once slept under the stars in Australia on a Bush tucker trail but this was in a Church yard in Leeds! Thankfully the weather was good but it still got bitter cold at 3am in a cardboard box in the city. That night the crowd raised £10,000 so a great effort from only 100 people fantastic. The Leeds City College students and a few of us hardened tutors cooked up bacon butty’s on BBQ’s for the sleepers and it was a great event well worth the discomfort and I am looking forward to sleeping at home tonight!
