Hungry for the Homeless and Addicted challenge

Gordon Cruden from Teen Challenge North East Scotland is currently attempting to survive sleeping rough in five cities across the UK and Ireland – London, Cardiff, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh – over the course of 30 days. He’s using the 'Hungry for the Homeless and Addicted' initiative to shine a light on the plight of hurting people and to raise funds for the purchase of female addiction recovery center, Benaiah. The challenge is part of a five-year campaign to raise the £535,000 required to buy Benaiah.

About the 'Hungry for the Homeless and Addicted' challenge
Gordon Cruden is about to gain first-hand experience of the harsh realities of life on the streets when he attempts the ‘Hungry for the Homeless and Addicted’ challenge.

With no money, no food, no home, no bed, no spare clothes and no friends, he will attempt to survive sleeping rough in five cities across the UK and Ireland – London, Cardiff, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh – over the course of 30 days.

Gordon will use the initiative to raise awareness of the plight of hurting people and to raise funds for the purchase of female addiction recovery center, Benaiah, in the North East of Scotland.

The challenge will commence on October 21 and is part of a five-year campaign to raise the £500,000 required to buy Benaiah.
