Sleep Out

Sleep Out 2020 is now live! Join the fight to help end homelessness.

 

Sign up and Sleep Out here

 

For one night, we ask you to give up your cosy bed and swap it for cold concrete to help raise funds and support homeless people into independent, fulfilled lives.

 

Sponsored by Croydon BID, we will once again be taking over Boxpark Croydon and pulling together the whole community in one fundraising event to truly help homeless people to rebuild their lives.

 

Will you sacrifice your bed and take to the cold, hard floor to help homeless people? Join us. Sign up and Sleep Out.

 

 

The details

The Sleep Out will begin at 9.30pm 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 Sleep Out mission will be complete. ‘Thank you’ breakfast baps 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. 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 suggested minimum of £250 per person in sponsorship. There is a registration fee of £20 to cover the costs of the event. And that’s it. Join us and Sleep Out. Boxpark Croydon, 29 March 2020.

My Story: Sharon

Sharon was evicted from the home she had lived in for 16 years when people she believed were her friends were caught using drugs there. Evolve helped her rebuild her confidence and move into her own home.
