Unividual joins the Big Bath Sleep Out

By Ben Carey on 11 March, 2022

Staff from Unividual have taken part in the Big Bath Sleep out to help raise funds for the city’s homeless charity Julian House.

The team from the Bath and London based financial advice firm slept rough in Alice Park on Friday 4th March to help raise vital funds and awareness of the charity’s work.

Unividual, which is also the main sponsor of the Big Bath Sleep Out, will now match fund the £2,217 raised by its staff.

Among those taking part from Unividual was Financial Planning Director Lewis Baxter.

He said, “We wanted to do the Big Bath Sleep Out to show our support for homeless people here in Bath and to help raise money for the charity. I grew up in Bath and this is something I have wanted to support for some time.  We know sleeping out for one night in the cold is nothing compared to what homeless people must go through day in, day out.

“We had the solace of knowing we were going home in the morning. It is awful to think of others who don’t have that luxury. I went straight home and curled up in bed. It is a very humbling experience and something I would recommend to people. Coming in to work Monday morning I had a lot more appreciation for everything in my life and a desire to want to do more to help others.”
