SAM’S SHOP FOR NIGHTSAFE!

2022-09-07T14:01:09+01:00

There’s something very special about a seven year old boy thinking of other young people, not that much older than himself, being homeless. And Nightsafe are very fortunate to have that special 7 year old supporting us! Sam Trickett decided he wanted to raise money for charity and after a long discussion with his parents he chose Nightsafe. The reason he gave was that no one should go to bed alone, hungry, and not safe. Sam’s plan was to have his own shop for a day “SAM'S SHOP!” and with the help of Lee Roe, the director of Clitheroe Football [...]

Jenson dives with sharks for Nightsafe!

2022-06-24T09:45:09+01:00

Swimming with sharks at any age sounds scary, but imagine if your child announced they wanted to do it? This was exactly what 8 year old Jenson did whilst he was watching the television with his parents. After mentioning it a few more times his parents suggested he use some of his Christmas money to book a dive at Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire and to make it more interesting Jenson made it a sponsored event and chose Nightsafe as the recipient. Daniel, Jenson’s dad, said “Jenson is so kind and generous. When he sees homeless people he always buys [...]
