Watch: the first Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out
15 October 2018
This is what happened when Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers swapped their beds for cardboard boxes to help us tackle homelessness. Thank you to everyone who took on the challenge to raise money for us.
The Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out for Porchlight is possibly the biggest sponsored sleep out the county has ever seen.
Around 3,000 young people put themselves in the shoes of someone who's homeless by sleeping outside with nothing but cardboard for protection. In addition to raising money the will allow us to support homeless people, 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.
A massive thank you to everyone 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.
