Shopping centre hosts Big Sleep Out

2 December 2019

East Manchester’s Lime Square Shopping Centre is hosting the city’s Big Sleep Out this Saturday (December 7th) as part of the global campaign to highlight the issue of homelessness. 
The event at Lime Square has been organised by local charity Homeless Friendly which was set up by Dr Zahid Chauhan who is also a councillor at Oldham Council. 
Around 200 people at Lime Square have registered to join thousands of others in cities across the globe to sleep out on Saturday night. The Lime Square event will help to raise money for the charity Homelessness Friendly. 
The event at Lime Square will feature music and entertainment as well as a “keep warm” routine from the centres’ Gym Group and a bedtime story, some special guest will also be making an appearance. 
Businesses at the centre including Greggs, Costa Coffee, Morrison’s and McDonalds are supporting the event as well as the centre’s owners Dransfield Properties Ltd. 
The Lime Square team have worked with the organisers to deliver the event and Dransfield Properties Centre Liaison Manager Mellissa Goff is also taking part in the Sleep Out. 
Mellissa said: “We are really proud to be hosting the Sleep Out at Lime Square, Dr Chauhan and the team at the Medical Centre have done a great job organising everything and we’re hopeful Saturday’s event will raise lots of money as well as awareness of the problem of homelessness.”
