Aksia's Fundraising For Centrepoint Passes Six Figures

A 14-strong team from Aksia Europe participated in Centrepoint’s Annual Sleep Out as part of its partnership with the UK-based youth homelessness charity. In support of Centrepoint's 50th anniversary, Team Aksia raised funds and slept out in the cold for one night to give them a small insight into the challenges the young people face. In total, Aksia has proudly raised over £120,000 for Centrepoint over the last two years.

Centrepoint’s Director of Fundraising, Di Gornall, commented, “Aksia has shown amazing commitment fundraising for Centrepoint and helping to positively change the lives of the young people we support. After raising £72K at last year’s Sleep Out and topping the fundraising leaderboard, they are already nearing the £50k mark for this year. We have loved working with Aksia and everyone at Centrepoint is incredibly grateful for their hard work, support and dedication to ending youth homelessness.”

The amount raised by Team Aksia could enable 250 homeless young people to benefit from one on one counselling sessions, which offer individuals the support they need to recognize and build healthy relationships, aim to improve their confidence and support them in developing coping mechanisms to break the cycle of abuse.
