Staff at Brighouse business Yorkshire Payments spent the night sleeping rough on the streets supporting the first mass charity sleep-out in Huddersfield.

The Brighouse-based firm, which provides a wide range of merchant services to businesses in Yorkshire, was the headline sponsor of the mass sleep-out organised by homeless charity Simon on the Streets. It also donated £1,500 in sponsorship with employees individually raising a further £444.62 and counting.

Managing director James Howard made the decision to support the charity and with his 13-strong team spent the night sleeping on the concrete behind the John Smith’s stadium alongside other businesses.
