Queens Hotel General Manager will be raising funds for homeless people

In his day job, General Manager of The Queens Hotel Portsmouth, Paul Playford, can be found looking after some of the top bedrooms in the city.

On Thursday April 27th he will be swapping the comforts of a warm bed for a night sleeping under the stars at Fratton Park, but it’s all for a good cause.

He is taking part in the CEO Sleepout at Portsmouth Football Club to raise funds for local charities tackling homelessness in the city.

“This is such a great cause and when I heard about the CEO Sleepout I was really keen to get involved.

“I am hoping that businesses we work with will support what I am doing, as well as family and friends,” said Paul.

CEO Sleepout has raised £3.5 million for more than 100 charities working hard to tackle homelessness in cities across the UK.

“I would really appreciate any sponsorship that people can give me. It will certainly be an experience sleeping at the football ground in a sleeping bag.

“But I am the lucky one as it is only one night,” he added.
