We will be helping Step by Step to support local young people facing hard times, by joining in with the popular Sleep Out on 21st June 2019
Swapping our comfy beds for the floor under the EBB Stadium terraces, we will be asking for sponsorship from our customers, colleagues, friends & family to support Step by Step….
Giving up our beds for one night and sleeping out seems a small thing to do to ensure that the young people in our community don’t have to face homelessness.
Based in Aldershot, Step by Step passionately believe in supporting local young people, providing a range of services to help them fulfil their aspirations and reach their full potential; providing accommodation, personal development, opportunities and specialist support services.

THE GREAT BAKE-OFF CHALLENGE & OFFICE ANTICS
This week saw the first Insight Legal Great Bake-Off Charity Challenge take place.
Members of the team spent their weekends, baking, cooking, icing and decorating to create masterpieces and delicious foods for the charity event; from award-winning sausage rolls to a smartie filled rainbow cake and plenty of tarts, muffins, breads and flapjacks inbetween, the office tables were a feast.
To keep us occupied and updated whilst we munched our way through the delights, Anda from Step by Step gave a presentation to remind us on the fantastic work that Step by Step do for the young people in our community and bought us up to date on the preparations for the Sleep Out Challenge on 21st June. 8 members of the Insight team will be taking to the cold and hard floor to sleepout for the night and experience the hardship that some of the young people face before Step by Step are there to help them.
All the funds from the Bake-Off, the Onesie of Shame nominations and Pick a Winner game, held in the office during the Bake Off day, have been added to our Just Giving page.
We also heard from the board of Directors, who have announed that whatever our Just Giving page achieves Insight Legal will match the donation – brilliant news for the team and the charity! So now over to you to help get this Just Giving page as many doantions as possible ….
