Rob Russell, co-CEO of AC Group, and Joss Croft, CEO of UKinbound, are making a call to travel industry CEOs to join the annual CEO Sleepout to raise money under a ‘travel sector’ banner. The pair have confirmed their participation in the event to raise awareness of the plight of homelessness and share the charity’s work in fighting poverty and homelessness.

“People don’t want to be homeless but they often have no choice – we don’t always see the terrible human impact that homelessness can have on individuals and their families,” says Joss. “CEO Sleepout is a great cause and I hope that travel industry chief executives accept the challenge, step up and support this fantastic charity and its work.”

“As an industry that is responsible for booking so many beds or guests it seems quite an apt charity for us to support and get the industry behind,” adds Rob. “This year we would like other industry CEOs to join us so we can try to raise as much money under a ‘Travel’ banner as possible.”

This year’s CEO Sleepout in London is scheduled for 14 October 2019, with events happening in other cities across UK. CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. Its fight is funded with money raised by big-hearted business and community leaders who pledge to sleep outdoors for one night to raise awareness and sponsorship from their business contacts and friends. CEO Sleepout put the donations to work fighting homelessness and poverty in each of their host cities, holding CEO Sleepout events in cities across the UK. The London event is held at Lord’s Cricket Ground, see https://www.ceosleepoutuk.com/
