Attention CEOs! Do you fancy taking part in a charity sleepout?
St George's Crypt and the Leeds Rhinos Foundation are bringing together senior figures from Leeds City Council, including Tom Riordan and West Yorkshire Police Superintendent Paul Money for a sleepout at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on 30th October. The aim of the event is to raise awareness and funds for the Crypt and the Leeds Rhinos Foundation.

The Emley Players return with Rock Band Reunion, a murder mystery dinner taking place on Saturday 2nd December 2017.
This year's event is taking place at the St George's Centre, Great George Street, Leeds, LS1 3BR. It's a great opportunity for people to get dressed up as their rock / pop idols whilst figuring out "whodunnit." The night also includes a delicious three course meal provided by Nurture.
Tickets cost £30 per person, or £250 for a full table of 10. There is an extra 10% discount if tickets are booked before 14th October 2017.

We would like to encourage your young people to get involved with their community by thinking of all sorts of creative ways to carry out ‘One Good Deed’ in return for a donation for St George’s Crypt. Remember ‘Bob a Job’?
In the past at this time of year many schools, churches and the public at large are very thoughtful in donating lots of consumables which we use on a day to day basis both here at the Crypt and at our food parcel service in Armley. These donations help us to continue supporting the vulnerable and needy in our city, but we also need help to heat the building, cook the food, wash the bedding - - -. Last month we washed 456 sets of bedding – that’s an enormous amount of washing powder.
At St George’s Crypt we feed 70 people each day and offer 36 beds each night but we provide something even more important and that is community. Community provides a great security net when in need; it encourages people to get involved which makes people feel valued; it creates a sense of belonging. All together this helps to nurture self-esteem and along with that comes confidence which form the building blocks to a new life.
In or out of school; large gesture or small favour it all counts. Bake some cakes, loan a book, plait your friend’s hair, paint their nails, wash up, sweep the drive – whatever; be as creative as you like! You can ‘make someone’s day’ and by return their donation will directly support the crucial work of the Crypt.
