This event has been postponed to the 8th March 2018

David Beharall, Managing Director at CandidSky, is joining Tyneside’s business leaders for the CEO Sleepout at St James Park on 1st March 2018.

David will spend the evening sleeping outdoors to fundraise and raise awareness of homelessness and poverty across the region. The temperature is due to be in the minuses, with snow forecast as the ‘beast from the east’ hits the UK. According to government figures, homelessness is at a seven year high, 4,751 people slept outside overnight in 2017, up 15% on 2016.

As an ex-professional footballer for Newcastle United, returning to St James Park is particularly poignant, David commented, “St James Park holds many memories for myself, so I’m really keen to return to fundraise for this brilliant charity and the amazing work they do.  I participated in the CEO Sleepout last year and it’s a very humbling experience.”
