Sleep Out at Yours on 9th October 2020 invites people to give up the comfort of their beds and sleep out in their gardens for one night. The aim is to get sponsored and raise money for local young people who face the prospect of sleeping rough for real.
The Sleep Out has been a large gathering in previous years, with 2019 seeing over 200 participants getting together to raise £16,000. This year, due to current restrictions, Sleep Out will be a virtual event, with participants taking part from their own gardens and homes.
2020 has been a difficult year for charities, as it has for everyone, and a great deal of revenue has been lost from having to cancel fundraising events. But we’re determined to make the best of it, and make Sleep Out at Yours a fun experience and a successful fundraiser.
Sleep Out at Yours is suitable for the whole family, and participants will be entertained by live music and young people’s stories streamed on the night. So dust down your sleeping bag, kiss goodbye to your beloved duvet, and help raise money for young people at risk of homelessness.
