Kent Scouts Sleep Out


Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers around Kent are joining forces to tackle homelessness for the first ever Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out this October...

What is the Big Cardboard Sleep Out?

About the sleep out

Up to 3,500 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are going to hold a sponsored sleep out for Porchlight on Friday, 12 October. It looks set to be the biggest sleep out Kent has ever seen. It will also give those involved a better understanding about what people who are homeless have to go through every day.
