The first Kent Scout Big Cardboard Sleep Out

It was the county's biggest homelessness fundraiser

Around 3,000 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers put themselves in the shoes of someone who's homeless by sleeping outside with nothing but cardboard for protection.

In addition to raising money that will allow us to tackle homelessness, it also gave those taking part an eye-opening experience of what people who live and sleep on the streets have to go through every day.

We'd like to say a massive thank you to all the kind-hearted Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers who took part.

We'd also like to thank our sleep our sponsors - Bedfont Scientific Ltd, Brachers Lawyers and Solicitors, Checkmate Lifting and Security, Clive Emson Land & Property Auctioneers, Cotswold Outdoor, DS Smith, Givaudan Perfume, Holiday Extras, James Villa Holidays, MHS Homes, Romax Marketing & Distribution, RTC and Tread-Well Surfacing.
