Got Your 6 – in Support of The Royal British Legion and Homeless Veterans
Lynx Fuels are delighted and proud to show our support for the fundraising event, Got Your 6 Sleep Out, in aid of the Royal British Legion. The Got Your 6 Sleep Out was devised by our very own driver, Jonny Bryan, alongside Shane Moore. It will involve a night of voluntary rough sleeping for these two former veterans, who wish to raise awareness around the issue of homelessness among people who have served in the armed forces. The Sleep Out will take place Saturday 25th January 2020, at Billingham Cenotaph.
This challenging fundraiser is gathering great momentum and has already attracted attention from organisations such as Middlesbrough FC. It goes without saying that the Got Your 6 fundraiser has the full support of everyone at Lynx Fuels.
Homelessness has become a big issue amongst the veteran community and has yet to receive the media attention it deserves. At Lynx Fuels we are especially thankful to the service men and women who give so much for our country, so it is only right to pay them the respect that they deserve.
“Since the draw down in recent operations in the middle east and the end of the conflicts in Northern Ireland & the Falklands there has been a large increase in homelessness, PTSD and record high numbers in suicide in the veteran community. GOT YOUR 6 campaign make these issues our top priority and will campaign hard to get this in the public eye.” said Jonny Bryan.
He continued “The Royal British Legion were selected as our nominated charity as we felt they would make the best use of donations, helping to assist struggling veterans.”
The hours of the sleep out will be 12:00pm 25/01/2020 – 12:00pm 26/01/2020. It would be amazing if people could show Jonny and Shane plenty of support for their fantastic efforts.
