Hold your own Sleep Out

Hold your own Sleep Out

Following the success of several Sleep Out events in Croydon and wider London, we now run a ‘Sleep Out Series’ that gives people the opportunity to hold their own events.

The premise

For one night, we ask you to give up your warm, cosy bed and sleep outside, in order to raise money in support of people impacted by homelessness. If you want to raise money for this important cause and take on something new, then this could be the activity for you!

The details

Anyone can run their very own Sleep Out in their local community. Whether at your school, church or with your scout or guide group – all you need is some willing participants! Once you have rounded up the troops you just need organise the location, pick a date, and spread the word in order to encourage donations. We generally advise that people aim to raise at least £50 each – an achievable but very valuable amount!

When you have decided you want to run an event, we are very happy to work with you on the process and answer any questions along the way. We are here to help! Email fundraising@evolvehousing.org.uk to get started.

Of course, this challenge will not truly represent the dangers and harsh reality of what it is to be rough sleeping. However, by taking part you will be raising much needed funds to help ensure that fewer and fewer people experience this.

What’s more, you wil be raising the issue of homelessness with new people, increasing public understanding and making sure that ending it remains a priority.

So what do you say? Why not get some people together and start organising your very own Sleep Out!
