Aksia Sleeps Out For Centrepoint
An 11-strong team from research and portfolio advisory firm's Aksia Europe recently participated in Centrepoint’s Sleep Out, as part of its partnership with the UK-based youth homelessness charity. Eschewing creature comforts to sleep out on a cold November night, team Aksia raised in excess of £70,000 from outside donations, the highest of any of the 120 teams taking part and more than any team in Sleep Out history.
The amount raised is enough to allow Centrepoint to help 28 homeless young people break the cycle for good, by giving them a home and intensive support with health and learning.
Valérie Bénard, Head of Aksia Europe, commented, “The decision to partner with Centrepoint resonated with Aksia, particularly at this time of year, when thousands of young people in the UK won’t have a place to call home. We look forward to supporting them in 2019 too, which will mark the charity’s 50th anniversary.”
