Up for a challenge?
The St Wilfrid's Centre Sleep Out is returning for its second year. But this year we are challenging you to sleep on the ground outside the Centre, in our car park.
Sleeping Rough is a growing problem in our City. By choosing to sleep outside in our car park, next to a busy road, it will give you a chance to challenge yourself and gain a small insight into what it is like for rough sleepers for whom sleeping rough is not a one-off experience.
How to get involved
We are asking all participants to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship and pay a £10 registration fee (students age 16-18 this is £25 sponsorship).
Once you have registered online we will send you all the information that you need to prepared for your night outside and tips on how to fundraise.
Experience something new, support our work and take on our challenge by registering today.
Sleep Out Details
Participants are invited to arrive at the Centre from 8.30pm. Time to drop off bags and ‘hang out’ in the Centre, use the games and chat until closing time at 11.00 pm. Hot soup and drinks will be served at 9.30 pm.
Everyone will be asked to leave the building at 11.00 pm and then grab a spot outside, pitch a tent, get their cardboard bedding and settle in for the night.
A light breakfast will be served from 6.30 pm and there will be a spot of yoga at 7.30 to help stretch out the tired limbs.
