Sponsored Sleep Out
Could you go without your comfy bed for one night?
Calling all companies, community groups and students!
Take on the challenge and get sponsored to build cardboard shelters outside and spend the night in them.
Taking part with your friends or colleagues is fun and exciting, but it also provides a valuable insight into what it's like for people who have no choice but to sleep rough every day of the week.
For younger children, organise a Sponsored Sit Out instead! They get sponsored to make cardboard shelters and spend an evening in them (before taking the sleep over indoors)
No need to sleep on it, download our Sleep Out pack today! It contains all the information you need to organise the event and raise as much sponsorship as you can.
Register your event below and please email us your photos! (If they feature under 18s, please make sure you have parental permission for them to be used publicly)
Porchlight is a fantastic local charity to support. The scouts have been totally inspired and wanted to raise funds by taking part in a cardboard sleep out – giving them a taste of what it’s like to sleep rough.
Taking part in an activity with Porchlight ticks all the boxes – the scouts cover several badges, they learn what it’s like to be homeless and then they are empowered to go and do something which ultimately will help get someone off the streets.
