Aligra supported local boxing manager and gym owner, Paddy Fitzpatrick, as he slept rough in Swindon's Old Town to raise awareness for the areas homeless.

Government statistics show 2,744 people slept rough in England on any one night during 2014.

Aligra were delighted to provide both a financial contribution and some new sleeping bags in support of Paddy's sleep-out.  Aligra MD, Mark Neilson said "We donate significant sums every year to local charities through our 'Give as you earn' scheme and were delighted to help when we heard Paddy was doing a sleep-out to raise awareness.  Homelessness is a growing problem and most people are unaware of the number of people it affects with government figures being widely considered as too low.  Although our contribution will not go anywhere near solving the issue, it may help some people and also assist with raising awareness.
