"Some of our staff, and people they know, have been affected by homelessness and sofa surfing during their lives. 


So, as well as raising vital funds for this deserving cause, we also want to help The Bridge Homelessness to Hope with their work to overcome some of the stigmas surrounding homelessness.


Support is out there and charities such as The Bridge are doing vital work to help this vulnerable community."

Jops Dann, Social Value & FAIR Coordinator at Heidelberg Materials UK.

“The support from Heidelberg Materials UK has been amazing. They’ve really embraced the challenge of The Big Sleep and we look forward to working with them on other fundraising and educational campaigns in the near future.”

David Fawcett, CEO at The Bridge Homelessness to Hope.


"We are delighted to support The Bridge by donating flasks, overnight bags and waterproof capes.


It’s part of our three-year collaboration with the Leicester-based charity, whose vision is for everyone in the city to have a place to call home and hope for the future."

Volunteers from Heidelberg Materials UK.



As part of their three-year partnership with The Bridge Homelessness to Hope, staff from Heidelberg Materials UK are volunteering their time to support the charity.

So far, volunteers have joined guests at The Bridge in making Christmas decorations for their as part of their 12 Days of Christmas campaign in December, supported the kitchen with their breakfast and lunch service, and volunteered on reception, greeting guests as they arrive.


Over 40 staff from Heidelberg Materials UK participated in this year’s 'Big Sleep' raising an incredible £13,630 for the The Bridge!

Heidelberg staff from across the UK joined other fundraisers at The Bridge's annual charity event where people are invited to sleep outside for one night to raise money for, and awareness of the challenges experienced by the city’s homeless community.

Heidelberg Materials UK staff slept out overnight at the University of Leicester, as well as their own Chipping Sodbury Quarry site near Bristol, with some colleagues sleeping out in their own gardens.


"Although our staff are located around the UK, the 'Big Sleep' campaign has the full support of the entire business – we know how important it is and we’re so proud of how our teams have engaged.”

All of the money raised by Heidelberg Materials UK will support a range of services that The Bridge delivers including breakfast and lunch, access to hot showers, clothing and toiletries, washing and drying facilities, and the support from Case Workers and Mentors.

"I have been coming to The Bridge for over three years and every time I visit, I am welcomed into a space where I feel safe and relaxed. I’m greeted by staff and volunteers who are kind and helpful.


When I come down, I am able to wash and dry my clothes, which for a rough sleeper is a big help, and I am able to have a hot shower in the morning. The thing I like most about coming here is that I am respected as a person and treated kindly. Without The Bridge’s services, I would be lost."
