Sleep rough so others don’t have to!
One night can make a lifetime of difference.
On Friday 29th March 2019, we will be sleeping out overnight at the Gracechurch Centre in Sutton Coldfield from 7pm – 7am to raise awareness and money to prevent youth homelessness.
Get a group together, bring a friend or family member and make a night of it! Join us and spend the night in your own cardboard home to support this great cause and raise money for local charity YMCA Sutton Coldfield.
On of last year’s participants Kate, shares her experience
“The experience of sleeping rough for the night made me think a lot about what homeless people have to endure every night. I hope that the money raised will help to provide somewhere safe to sleep for those in need.”
Last year, we raised an amazing £10k! This year, we’d like to double that figure and reach our target of £20k. But to do this, we need your help!
