The Foundation raise in excess of £1400 to help combat social isolation across Doncaster

13 December 2021

Friday 3rd December saw brave members of Foundation staff and the community donning their warmest woolies, ahead of what was to be a freezing night sleeping in the stands.

The Sleep Out fundraiser was staged at the iconic Keepmoat Stadium, providing little cover from the elements. With a sleeping bag and cardboard mat in tow, all participants endured the night spent in the East Stand of the Stadium. 

A success all round with particpants raising over £1400 in total, the Sleep Out delivered what it had set out to do; enabling the continuation of The Foundation's social isolation community services such as Walk & Talk. Such sessions invite members of the public to join the team for a leisurely stroll around Lakeside, followed by board games hosted at Foundation Fitness Cafe. 

Maia Smith, Foundation Health & Wellbeing Officer, commented: “[The Social Isolation Projects] are very important for participants who, over the last year and a half, have been on their own and can now get out socialising again."

Nick Gillott, who heads up many of the social isolation services, as Health & Wellbeing Manager, described the night as providing a good insight into what many people in the community are faced with.

Walk & Talk sessions take place every Tuesday at 12pm at Foundation Fitness, and do not require any form of booking - just turn up and the team will be happy to welcome you.
