Fantastic news story from the team at Aldridge Accident and Repair Centre (AARC) who, together with friends and local businesses, have raised funds to help homeless people in the West Midlands.
Sleep Pods are an emergency aid for rough sleepers in severe weather conditions. They are built to protect rough sleepers in the UK and refugees in Europe. They are designed to keep people warm, dry and safe.
AARC staff and friends – and with the support of local business – have come together to raise funds to produce and distribute to date 364 Sleep Pods for the homeless of the West Midlands.
"SLEEP PODS` is a story that we at AARC – Aldridge Accident Repair Centre have really taken on board," said Martin Collins, Group Managing Director. "In this season of goodwill the homeless in our country and cities are often overlooked and rough sleeping leads to hardship and even death
"Whilst not a solution to the problem of homelessness Sleep Pods can help keep the homeless warm and dry overnight and remember, one Sleep Pod only costs £25 & can save a life!"
