Gnatta founder to fight homelessness on CEO Sleepout


Gnatta founder Jack Barmby will join other CEOs in the Greater Manchester area in giving up his bed for one night to help fight homelessness and poverty in the UK.

Barmby will sleep outdoors on 16th October to raise awareness and aid for homeless funds as part of CEO Sleepout.

He hopes that he will raise more than £1,000 for the homeless in Manchester with the support of his colleagues, family, friends and the local community.

“CEO Sleepout is going to be incredibly tough; sleeping rough in Manchester will really drive home the reality that people face on a daily basis,” he said.

“As someone fortunate enough to have a steady income, it’s important that I help raise awareness of a key problem in our area.

“The Manchester Evening News has been doing some incredible work highlighting the problem and I hope I can help in my own, small way.”

Barmby founded the Bury-based business – which featured on our 101 Tech Disrupters list – at the age of 21 whilst studying at university.
