CEO Sleep Out

Administrator Richard Colley is preparing to pull on some gloves, don a beanie and roll out the sleeping bag, in support of those doing it tough, particularly in Canterbury-Bankstown.

Mr Colley is one of hundreds of business leaders set to take part in this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout on Thursday 22 June at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The annual event, which is now in its twelfth year in Sydney, raises funds to help homeless people.

According to the St Vincent de Paul Society, it helps the 1.8 million men, women and children in Australia each year who are at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.

Mr Colley’s motivation to step outside his comfort zone, and the comfort of his own bed, stems from a desire to help others and shed light on homelessness.

"I’ve been very fortunate to not have experienced homelessness but if it takes sleeping out in the cold for one night to raise awareness and help raise funds to help our homeless, then I am more than willing to do that," Mr Colley said.

Since 2006, more than 5,000 business and community leaders have been part of the CEO Sleepout, which is now a world-wide movement to help Vinnies assist some of the most vulnerable people in Australia.

Council staff are supporting Mr Colley in reaching his fund raising target of $5,000.

"I am encouraging other business leaders in Canterbury-Bankstown to join me and help raise funds for this great cause," Mr Colley said.

"This event is a way we as a City can join together to show we really care about the homeless."

Bankstown Sports Club, Revesby Workers Club and Canterbury League Club have already pledged their support through donations.
