We wanted this year’s Sleepout to be the biggest we’ve had and it was! 55 people took part in this year’s Sleepout solidarity event and raised an amazing total of £14,616.28, which will go towards helping so many people off the street. Thanks to all the volunteers and participants for their amazing work!
Given the feedback we received, all participants gained a better understanding of rough sleeping and how difficult it is to sleep out under the elements.
One participant said: “What an eye opening experience. It really makes you appreciate the comforts we take for granted. One night is all I had, hard to imagine having to endure this night after night.”
Another said: “I would recommend as many people as possible attend something like this to develop some empathy.”
Help us make the Big Sleepout 2018 an even bigger and more enriching event.
