We are inviting you to join the first ever Evolve Sleep Out in Croydon Boxpark on 24 March 2019, kindly sponsored by Croydon BID.
For one night, we ask you to give up your warm, cosy beds and sleep out to support homeless people into independence.
The mission? To brave the night-time elements and cold, hard floor and raise funds to help homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.
Want to take action against homelessness?! This is the event for you.
The Sleep Out will begin at 9.30pm in the Boxpark bar, with registration, a cuppa and a few inspiring words from some of the people we work with who have lived experience of sleeping on the streets. At 11pm we will take to the main floor and begin our night challenge of ‘Sleeping Out’.
By 6.30am Monday morning our mission will be complete. Breakfast baps at dawn and a finisher’s photo will mark our grand finale and we will leave sleepy headed and satisfied knowing we have actively taken action in the fight against homelessness.
Without Evolve and amazing supporters such as you, there would be an additional 700 people sleeping out on the streets.
The challenge will not truly represent the horrible dangers and harsh reality of what it is to be street homeless, but by taking part you will actively be supporting people who are homeless into happy, fulfilled independence, like you or I.
And more than that! You will be reiterating the need for homelessness to be put firmly on the agenda. Not just for one night, but until we end the cycle of homelessness for good.
So what do you say? Take part and raise a minimum of £175 per person in sponsorship. There is a registration fee of £20 to cover the costs of the event. And that’s it. So what are you waiting for? Join us and Sleep Out. Croydon Boxpark 24 March 2019.
