As editor of the Yorkshire Evening Post we do so many stories about the work of the Rhinos Foundation, St George's Crypt and St Gemma's Hospice - more importantly we hear the stories of the people who really need them. It's easy to say something more should be done - it's harder to do it. These charities do it every day and I want to do my bit to help them. I hate the cold and I'm not looking forward to a long, cold night one bit - but I'm doing it because some face far, far bigger challenges every day.

2018 Leeds Big Sleep

St George's Crypt, Leeds Rhinos Foundation and St Gemma's Hospice are partnering up for the 2018 Leeds Big Sleep.

We are inviting business people and supporters to sleep out at the home of Leeds Rhinos - Emerald Headingley Stadium on a cold (almost) winter evening Thursday 29 November 2018 to raise lots of money for our three worthy Leeds charities. 

St George’s Crypt has been providing care and support to homeless and vulnerable adults since 1930, offering food, emergency accommodation, activities, addiction recovery and skills training. Working towards a positive future.  

Leeds Rhinos Foundation delivers projects in the heart of the community.  We harness the power of sport to make a lasting, positive impact on individuals' lives. As Leeds Rugby's charity we have an amazing opportunity to truly change lives through sport. 

St Gemma’s Hospice provides expert care and support for local people with terminal illnesses. We offer specialist medical and nursing care to thousands of local people each year and offer invaluable support to their families and friends.
